Cape Cod Shelter and Domestic Violence Services was conceived in 1992 and incorporated in 1994 with the mission, goals and objectives to open a confidential domestic violence shelter on Cape Cod, and to provide safety, comprehensive advocacy, education, and support services to individuals and families staying in this confidential shelter. In March 2000, after a few years of planning, fundraising, and providing temporary support groups . . . the shelter opened full-time.
