PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT VETERANS, MILITARY MEMBERS, AND THEIR FAMILIES
The SAFEHOMES4VETS (SH4V) grant is available to help disabled Veterans by providing a barrier-free living environment, such as wheelchair ramps, wider doorways, as well as Kitchen and bath upgrades allowing accessible homes that afford Veterans a level of independent living they may not otherwise enjoy.
Veterans and current service members with specific service-connected disabilities may be entitled to a grant for the purpose of modifying their living accommodations to meet their individual adaptive needs, up to the current maximum of $20,000 for 2020.

The Homeless Reintegration Program (HVRP) is an employment-focused competitive grant program of the Department of Labor, Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS). It is the only federal grant to focus exclusively on competitive employment for homeless Veterans. The program has two core objectives: provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless Veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force, and 2) to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless Veterans.
If you are or know of a homeless Veteran looking for full-time employment, please reach out to learn more about HVRP eligibility and the services we can provide. To register for the program or to learn more as an employer, see Jobs4Vets Form.

Through this program, we distribute coats to veterans in need to help make sure that they are safe from the unforgiving winter weather. Coats4Vets is made possible through the generous donations from Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation.
We believe that the youth is among the most vulnerable members of veteran and military families, as they are affected by almost every situation and decision. That is why we aim to help these children through Operation Backpack.
To help with their education, we provide them with the basic tools they need to participate in school. This program culminates in late August before classes resume.
The holidays can be exciting and stressful. For veteran and military families, it may also mean that one or more parent is away from home, whether they are on duty or deployed. With Operation Santa, we aim to ease some of the burdens.
We host holiday parties where children can receive toys and choose a gift for their parents. They can also experience exciting pony rides, explore the petting zoo, enjoy the fantastic food, and have pictures with Santa.
The program also provides recreation opportunities for the children and their families throughout the year. Our goal is to relieve some of the stress and anxiety when a parent or loved one is deployed.

Cape Cod Military Support Foundation is currently seeking volunteers at work in a warehouse setting packing to sort food items and personal hygiene items for its Empowerment Center. The packing process is purposefully designed to address all precautions recommended to address COVID 19.
There are multiple stations that you may be assigned to work based on your preference, physical ability, and the number of volunteers available for each shift. There will, at all times, be a shift supervisor to provide instructions and answer questions.
We welcome volunteers to help at our Empowerment Center on Joint Base Cape Cod and for projects and events. Your interaction with our military and their families will leave you with a feeling of well-being and pride. Volunteers support our mission by putting Military, Coast Guard, and Veteran families first. Please complete and submit the form below and one of our staff will contact you.
