HYANNIS – The Cape and Islands United Way have announced the nonprofit organizations they will partner with for the coming year.

A total of 36 organizations and 42 programs will share $600,000 in funding from the Cape and Islands United Way to address critical community needs.

The Cape and Islands United Way has focus areas of health, education, financial stability and housing.

“Within each of those areas, we’re really looking at what organizations can we fund who are doing collaborative work, who are building in the long-term solutions,” said Cape and Islands United Way President and CEO Barbara Milligan.

Projects are chosen to help further the United Way’s vision to foster communities on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket where children succeed, families are financially stable, residents are healthy and there is safe and affordable housing for everyone.

The Falmouth Service Center, Children’s Cove, Calmer Choice and HopeHealth were among the 36 non-profit organizations chosen.

“It’s clear with all the challenges we have on the Cape right now that nobody can solve these problems working in silos, so we’re really trying to connect the dots with the programs that we’re funding,” said Milligan.

The next request for proposals will be released in the fall with a letter of intent due in November.
