Team Up for Habitat!

by Patricia Monahan

Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod (HHCC) holds a special place in my heart. It is because of this wonderful organization that I have a place of my own to call home.

Founded in 1976, by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity was based on Partnership Building. They believed that families in need would work side-by-side with volunteers to build simple and affordable homes.

HHCC was formed in 1988. In the early days, volunteers worked on the rehabilitation of rental properties and assisted veterans in need with ramps and other modifications for their homes. They also erected 18 new affordable homes for families on Cape Cod.

Victoria (Vicki) Goldsmith took the reins at HHCC in 1999, as their first full time Executive Director. Keeping the partnership principle in place, she has gone full steam ahead in the past 15 years.

Vicki brought her knowledge of Social Work and Property Management to HHCC, as well as her prior working experiences with Elder Services of Cape & Island and The Orleans Housing Authority.

Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod is one of the most active chapters in Massachusetts. As of August 1, 2014, their chapter has completed 90 homes. They expect to celebrate the 100th home by the fall of 2015

Building homes… Changing lives… Preserving community

Snail and Lighting: Creating a Cape Cod Women's Retreat

by Michelle Pelletier

My creative life alternates between snail and lighting. This summer it's the lighting. The previous years were a slow crawl to discovery. Sometimes creative impulses have to wait their turn to be realized. Then, lighting, where all the pieces come together and a deeper intention is brought to life.

The Center for Psychic Healing recently hosted its first annual Cape Cod Women's Retreat. We enjoyed six days of discovering energy awareness tools, meditations and events like the outdoor sauna, fire circle and Mary Magdalene healings. There was room to tent, room to stay in cozy queen-sized beds and, for locals, the opportunity to come and go as needed
