Community Health Center of Cape Cod is one of five Cape nonprofits to receive a Community Impact Strategic Focus Grant from The Cape Cod Foundation this year. The Health Center received $10,000 from The Jean B. Edgerly Memorial Fund and The Janet T. Spence Fund of The Cape Cod Foundation to support the expansion of its substance abuse treatment programming. In particular, grant funds will allow for increased outpatient, medication-assisted treatment, and they will help to expand programming to provide partial-day treatment, including intensive, integrated wellness, medical and mental health counseling. Currently, Community Health Center of Cape Cod provides more than 5,500 substance abuse-related visits annually. The Health Center aims to multiply these numbers to provide nearly 9,200 visits.
The Cape Cod Foundation recently announced that it would award $48,500 in strategic grants to nonprofits that provide preservation, health, employment, and educational services. Other grant recipients include, Association to Preserve Cape Cod, Duffy Health Center, Lower Cape Outreach Council, and Mass Audubon Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary & the Sanctuaries of the Mid and Upper Cape.
