Support Our Services
Each year the Cape & Islands Veterans Outreach Center (CIVOC) serves thousands of veterans and their families living in the Cape & Island region.
Our vision is to end chronic veteran homelessness and our mission is to provide comprehensive, life sustaining services and programs to veterans and their families. Unrestricted donations to The Annual Fund provides the support needed to provide veterans in need a place to call home, access to healthy food, and support from a counselor and case manager.
Without question, it would be impossible to properly serve and support our veterans without donors standing with us in this effort. Every financial donor who has made, or chooses to make, a gift to CIVOC this year will be properly recognized as a “Member”. Most critically, by sharing with others your support of our work, you help us meaningfully advance our mission. Thank you, in advance, for your friendship and for your appreciation of all those who selflessly gave of themselves to keep us safe.
