Community Action Committee of Cape Cod & Islands, Inc. (CACCI) is a private, nonprofit organization that provides a variety of services to low and moderate-income people to help them improve the quality of their lives and achieve self-sufficiency. Established in 1965 as one of Massachusetts' 25 Community Action Agencies (CAAs), CACCI has evolved over the years to address the needs of residents in Cape Cod and the islands.
CACCI accomplishes its mission by providing services primarily in the areas of housing, emergency shelters, advocacy for elders, and childcare services.
CACCI is governed by a 21-member Board of Directors that is structured to give the low-income people we seek to assist a voice in determining agency policy. To this end, one-third of CACCI's board consists of target population representatives. The remainder of the board is comprised of representatives from the private and public sectors.
In 44 years, CACCI has grown to serve nearly 13,850 unduplicated individuals annually through numerous state and federal contracts. The agency also receives support from private donors and foundations for many of its activities. CACCI continuously seeks new resources and creative ways to deliver services that meet changing community needs. The Agency's efforts are focused on advocating for the preservation and development of affordable housing, quality child care, educational opportunities and jobs that pay a living wage to insure that the people served continue to have opportunities for self-sufficiency.
