Get involved, join an area council to support your community.

2023 – 2024 Cape Cod Children’s Place

Community Engagement Calendar                  

Throughout the school year, we host eight community networking groups that provide a forum for us to stay connected to the needs of the families that we serve. These important meetings help shape our programs, services and supports.

We have reorganized our councils to better meet the needs of our local communities. Please note that the Dennis-Yarmouth and Barnstable Advisory Councils have combined to become the Mid-Cape Advisory Council.  We have also increased our presence on the Outer Cape and reduced duplication of services, by shifting the focus of the 11 Town Council to the Lower and Outer Cape. 

Please join us to learn about our collective community impact, how you can stay informed, and what to do to get involved. Below is our 2023-2924 meeting line up which is also posted on Meeting formats may vary. For more information, please call or email contacts listed below.
