2021 Telethon for Hope

About Telethon for Hope

We invite you to embrace the spirit of the season by giving back however you can – to help house our many neighbors in need.

Leading up to a live broadcast on local access Channels 98 & 99 on Friday, December 10th, we’ll celebrate our 12 Days of Giving on social media starting Monday, November 29th! During this festive campaign you can learn more about the difference you can make, with opportunities to engage at every level. With this year’s Telethon for Hope, you can expect holiday cheer and friendly competition among our phone bank fundraisers as they embrace the spirit of giving! 

We will also share important regional updates about how COVID-19 and recent economic changes have worsened the housing crisis across our nation, and especially on Cape Cod and the Islands. Most importantly, we will highlight what Housing Assistance is doing to address the housing crisis with your help!

The future of our communities is in all of our hands. It starts with housing!

You Can Help!

Whether you raise funds, become a sponsor, make an individual donation, or just spread the word, you can make a difference at a time when our community needs it the most.

Funds raised through this year’s Telethon for Hope will give hope to the more than 6,000 people who come into Housing Assistance on an annual basis seeking a safe, stable place to call home. Now more than ever, our homes are the foundation to keeping us safe, happy, and healthy.

Give 12

For the price of a lunch, a $12 donation to Housing Assistance makes a real difference for real people in our community. To make an even greater, lasting impact, consider giving 12 times a year – a recurring monthly donation of $12 will secure a night of shelter for a homeless mother and her child and connects people in crisis to services that help them stay safely housed.

Share 12

If you’ve demonstrated your commitment to safe and stable housing by making a donation — will you share it with 12 friends? Share pictures use the hashtag #HACTelethon21 on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and they'll be featured in our Photo Gallery – and you'll inspire others!

Ask 12

Be a mover and a shaker! Register online and create your own fundraising campaign… and ask 12 friends, family members or colleagues to support you. You can, of course, reach out to as many people as you like, but this year we’re feeling the power of 12! Tap into your network and fundraise for housing. 

Make sure to include a photo, set a fundraising goal, and share a story to let people know why housing is important to you. All of our fundraisers will be invited to join a virtual Telethon Phone Bank in November!

Awards, Points & Milestones

We'll be awarding a Telethon for Hope Traveling Trophy to our Top Individual Fundraiser and Top Team Fundraiser! In an effort to inspire some friendly competition, the trophies will "travel" from fundraiser to fundraiser every year. The top fundraisers name and event year will be engraved on the base of the trophy as a lasting tribute to our amazing fundraisers!

Through OneCause, you can also earn points as you fundraise, post photos, share your motivation to support the cause, AND achieve milestones. Fundraisers will also earn special event swag. Raise $100 to receive our Telethon for Hope commemorative pin. Raise $500 to receive a Telethon for Hope Santa hat. To learn more about Fundraiser Recognition, please visit our Fundraising Resources page.

We Want to Celebrate YOU!

Throughout the Telethon's 12 Days of Giving we will share clips of our Virtual Phone Banks and feature Telethon Fundraiser spotlights. We look forward to celebrating the generosity of our Telethon Fundraisers and highlighting why they're supporting Housing Assistance Corporation!
