This position is well suited to someone who is detail-oriented with good organizational and communication skills. No specific experience is required; training will be provided as necessary. Shifts vary but typically range from 3-4 hours on a reoccurring, weekly schedule.

Annual Event Focused Support

HPC holds events and programs throughout the year, including Walk For Home, Backpack-to-School, Rock to Stop Homelessness, and Adopt-a-Family. Each of these has its own set of needs for volunteers. In general, volunteers are needed to: chair the event/program, solicit donors, work on publicity and other outreach, and work on day-to-day planning/tasks as well as day-of-event to assist with set-up/clean-up and other tasks. To learn more about our annual events and programs, please visit our events page.

About us The Homeless Prevention Council (HPC) was organized as a 501c3 non-profit agency in May, 1991, by the Lower/Outer Cape Community Coalition. Originally named the "Interfaith Council for the Homeless," the agency was created to address a pressing need for case management services in the towns of the Lower and Outer Cape. HPC works directly in our community with our neighbors in need. We are confronting the housing crisis by providing supports and resources to ensure that everyone in our community can thrive.
