In anticipation of a challenging economy, many families are in need of childcare scholarships. Scholarship funding from the State of Mass. is changing, and becoming a challenge to receive. Cape Cod Children's Place accepts donations for scholarships for children who live in the Lower and Outer Cape. Please call us if you are interested in donating money to help our communities' families and children.
