telethon for hope 2021

Join us for 12 Days of Giving: Housing Assistance’s 18th Annual Telethon for Hope

We invite you to embrace the spirit of the season by giving back however you can – to help house our neighbors in need.

Leading up to a live broadcast on local access Channels 98 & 99 on Friday, December 10th, we’ll celebrate our 12 Days of Giving, where you can learn more about the difference you can make, with opportunities to engage at every level. With this year’s Telethon for Hope, you can expect holiday cheer and friendly competition among our phone bank fundraisers as they embrace the spirit of giving! 

We will also share important regional updates about how Covid-19 and recent economic changes have worsened the housing crisis across our nation, and especially on Cape Cod and the Islands. Most importantly, we will highlight what Housing Assistance is doing to address the housing crisis with your help!

The future of our communities is in all of our hands. It starts with housing!

You Can Help!

Whether you raise funds, become a sponsor, make an individual donation, or just spread the word, you can make a difference at a time when our community needs it the most.

Funds raised through this year’s Telethon for Hope will give hope to the more than 6,000 people who come into Housing Assistance on an annual basis seeking a safe, stable place to call home. Now more than ever, our homes are the foundation to keeping us safe, happy, and healthy.

Give 12

For the price of a lunch, a $12 donation to Housing Assistance makes a real difference for real people in our community. To make an even greater, lasting impact, consider giving 12 times a year – a recurring monthly donation of $12 will secure a night of shelter for a homeless mother and her child and connects people in crisis to services that help them stay safely housed.

Share 12

If you’ve demonstrated your commitment to safe and stable housing by making a donation — will you share it with 12 friends? Please share on social media and use the hashtag #HACTelethon21 — you will inspire others!

Ask 12

Be a mover and a shaker! Register online and create your own fundraising campaign… and ask 12 friends, family members or colleagues to support you. You can, of course, reach out to as many people as you like, but this year we’re feeling the power of 12! Tap into your network and fundraise for housing.

Sponsor the Telethon

As a Telethon for Hope Sponsor, your donation will go directly to our housing programs that help the most vulnerable among us. Telethon for Hope sponsors understand that housing is critical to healthy families, healthy neighborhoods, and a thriving year-round Cape Cod.

Lead a Telethon for Hope Phone Bank

We are recruiting teams of people to be on a Virtual Zoom Phone Bank. Recruit friends, family, and colleagues to join your phone bank. Challenge each team member to raise between $500-$1,000 to help you reach your fundraising goal and give the gift of housing this holiday season.

Phone Banks will be recorded in advance of this year’s Telethon for Hope in November with clips posted on our social media channels and included in the full broadcast on December 10th.
