Cape Abilities announced The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod Charitable Foundation Trust as the Inaugural Funder of Cape Abilities’ Adopt A Home fundraising program.
The onset of the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis this past spring presented great challenges for Cape Abilities to maintain and support its 16 Cape Cod residences and its participants and staff who live in these year-round, life-long homes.
The Coop Foundation has provided a two-year $20,000 grant to maintain one of Cape Abilities’ West Barnstable homes and make it more accessible for the residents who live there.
“We’re thrilled to be part of the growth of Cape Abilities and to be the first sponsor of the Adopt a Home program,” said Lisa Oliver, chair, president and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. “It’s fulfilling to know these funds will make life easier for the residents and staff, especially as we are still in the midst of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“Our Adopt A Home program looks to create partnerships between organizations and our residential homes, so we can bring individuals in our communities closer together and develop relationships that promote inclusive communities and opportunities for people of all abilities,” said Cape Abilities President and CEO Jonathan Sproul. “We are beyond grateful that The Coop Foundation recognized the potential of this program and jumped at the opportunity to become our inaugural Adopt a Home partner”
