Why are these programs so important?

Eastham is a wonderful town with beautiful landscapes and a rich heritage filled with history and culture. But what makes our town a community are the people who live and work here.

Unfortunately, there are many who may not be able to reside in Eastham due to a lack of affordable housing. Many of these individuals are our school teachers, police and fire officers and town employees. Others work in our stores and restaurants, in health and human services, in our tourism industry, construction, home maintenance and landscaping. And many more are people who already own a home here in Eastham but worry they can no longer afford to stay here or need to downsize.

These individuals are an integral part of our community and we want to keep them here. Let’s work together to help our town remain a thriving community for many years to come.
