Stories of Impact

The power of your generosity

The Cape and Islands United Way is built on the belief that, together, we can accomplish more than any individual or organization can do alone. And that has never been more true.

With your help, we are working to create a community that is strong, resilient and healthy, successful in school, economically stable and safely housed. In 2022, we distributed more than $700,000 to support our community in these areas.

These are just a few examples of what you helped provide:

  • One-to-one mentoring for at-risk youths

  • Rent and mortgage assistance to help keep people safely housed

  • Free meals and books for children and teens, when school is out

  • Supplements of critical basic needs for babies, like diapers and formula

  • Youth conflict resolution

  • Transitional housing assistance for adults who are homeless or near homeless in a safe, compassionate, respectful environment

  • In-person Alzheimer’s and Alzheimer’s caregiver support groups

  • Wellness-based addiction recovery programs

We are so appreciative of the feedback we get from our nonprofit partners – it lets us know that together, we a truly making a difference.

Many of of neighbors are struggling with the increased costs of basic necessities…your generosity will make a big impact, especially as the weather turns colder.

Your most recent grant has helped us to provide fresh produce to our clients! On top of this, we served more than 4,100 babies last year, none of which would be possible without generous supporters like you!

You help us help people become more active participants in our community – able to access primary care, behavioral health, complex care, dental, substance use disorder, pharmacy services and more. These individuals are not judged, and receive access to care when and where they need it.

Your generosity will make more great stories like this possible.
