The Provincetown "Little Fix" Program
The Little Fix Program Mission: Coordinated by The Provincetown Housing Office and funded with Provincetown Community Preservation Act Funds, The Little Fix will send teams of volunteers to assist homeowners & renters with clean-up, landscaping, and small home repair projects targeting seniors, disabled, and veterans. The goal is to provide small home and landscaping improvements, largely through a volunteer base, to enhance the safety, comfort, and quality of life for seniors, veterans, and the disabled.  The residents will be selected based on income, repair needs, and our ability to meet the request. We anticipate our first Little Fix volunteer day will be in Spring 2015. Volunteer applications may be considered for that date and/or a future Little Fix program day. A variety of volunteers will be needed to perform small landscaping, and home improvement projects. Volunteer assistance will also be needed for coordination of teams and refreshments. For more information contact Housing Specialist Michelle Jarusiewicz at or 508/487-7087.

Help Prevent Homelessness Food Gift Card Program
The Homeless Prevention Council offers food gift cards at various locations including their office at 14 Old Tote Road in Orleans and at various locations on the Lower Cape. Contact Community Housing Specialist Michelle Jarusiewicz at for additional information.  Gift cards are purchased at face value; the owner receives full value and the Homeless Prevention Council receives 5% of the card value from the participating market. So, a $100 gift card will provide a $5 donation. A win-win offer providing financial assistance to fight homelessness. Last year, the Homeless Prevention Council experienced a 32% increase in their case load and expect that to be even greater this year. At the same time, with state and federal cutbacks, there are fewer resources available.
