Ways to Give

Help us be here for you now and in the future

During this pandemic, Outer Cape Health Services needs your help to combat the spread of COVID-19 and return to a “new normal.” In the wake of this public health crisis, we are challenged with reduced patient visits along with unanticipated new expenses, including COVID-19 testing and vaccination outreach to some of our most vulnerable residents.

As the Outer and Lower Cape’s only community health center, we need your help to bridge the gap and help us through this crunch. Covid-19 has presented us with both a combined health and financial crisis. For those of you able to give, it has never been more important or appreciated.

While we continue to provide Urgent Care, Covid-19 testing, in-patient and telemedicine visits, behavioral health, radiology and pharmacy services, private support is essential for our daily operations. A gift in any amount is appreciated toward immediate operational expenses. Click the DONATE NOW button and have an immediate impact on our nonprofit operations, now and into the future. Thank you!
