The Humanitarian Response Fund and Volunteer Coordination was launched in response to humanitarian crises’ as they arise and to focus on people in transition, whether that be immigration-based, due to domestic violence, or homelessness.
As Cape Cod comes together to help Venezuelan migrants at Joint Base Cape Cod, Housing Assistance is helping them navigate the shelter system and connect them with resources. At Housing Assistance, we look at the totality of the need, and we are anticipating future humanitarian response needs based on what we are experiencing.
Displacement happens every day in the world. Sometimes it’s people fleeing natural disasters, war or violent persecution. Other times it’s economic forces pushing our Cape workforce off Cape. We help with the urgent displacement while maintaining our long-term focus on addressing the Cape’s housing crisis. That’s why we’re launching the Humanitarian Response Fund and Volunteer Coordination.
Humanitarian – Means helping people who are suffering and saving lives any time, any place in the world. And so humanitarian work requires being responsible, conscious of the circumstances of other people’s lives, and helping them on the basis of need, without discrimination.
