As we come up on a year of the global pandemic, many things remain restricted or canceled but KINDNESS, HOPE &LOVE remain!
For the past 7 years we have annually celebrated the Holidays with a massive local giveaway. This year in the spirit of giving and of service to our community as well as love, we will instead highlight 24 days of local non profit organizations in our region showcasing how vitally important they are!

Children's Cove always comes to the top of our mind as one of the most vital and important resources our community and region has to offer. For over 23 years now they have dedicated themselves to being on the front lines helping to assist and protect our most vulnerable population. In the now established age of virtual learning and more kids than ever being online, our kids are now bigger targets than they have ever been and all too often it can be easy to miss small signs.
Children’s Cove provides compassionate, comprehensive, and collaborative response services at no cost to survivors of child abuse through its evidence-based programs, network of community partnerships, educational outreach and awareness efforts. Its multidisciplinary team works together to empower survivors, promote healthy outcomes, and help mitigate the stigma of child abuse. They are located in Hyannis but serve all of the Cape and Islands.
Additionally they really focus on education. They provide free talks, education and training throughout the community. They have volunteers that raise awareness and create connections to us to help provide services and support to those in need. They encourage all of us to have conversations with your children about body safety, prevention, and anything else that is important. Start those conversations EARLY and have them often. It’s never too early to start, but it can feel like it is too late to start.
For many years now we have partnered with Children's Cove to assist with their outreach and to help break the stigma that surrounds this topic. We have had Outreach Coordinator, Jacob Stapledon on a few times to discuss both Body Safety and Tough Topics which both can be viewed by clicking those links. The information they have shared in helping education our parents and caregivers is crucial to any adult raising children as well as educating the next generation about their bodies and boundaries.
Thank you to Children's Cove and their amazing dedicated team who work tirelessly to help, protect and educate us.
