The Cape and Islands Veterans Outreach Center (CIVOC) vision is to end chronic veteran homelessness and our mission is to provide comprehensive, life sustaining services and programs to veterans and their families.
We deliver service-enriched housing and all-inclusive supportive programs to veterans to ensure a lasting reintegration into the families and communities for which they have sacrificed.
Your support provides veterans in need a place to call home, access to healthy food, and support from a counselor and case manager. Over the course of FY20 there were nearly 220 veterans who accessed homeless services on the Cape and Islands.
Including those who are near homelessness, on any given night there are over 50 veterans who are actively without permanent housing living in our community.
Since 1983, the Cape and Islands Veterans Outreach Center is the only nonprofit veterans outreach center for the Cape and the Islands specializing in addressing Housing Assistance and Homelessness Prevention, Mental Health Support, and Food Insecurity. The Center also provides veterans access to partner agencies and services outside of our core focuses.
No veteran is left behind to fight their personal battle alone.
