Calmer Choice Awarded ARPA Funding in Collaboration with Cape Cod Children's Place


Calmer Choice & Cape Cod Children's Place celebrate their selection as ARPA recipients

On May 31st 2023, Calmer Choice was honored to join a select group of Cape-based organizations whose projects were awarded funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

Calmer Choice will collaborate with the Cape Cod Children's Place to provide mindfulness-based programming that will support the creation of a culture of resilience in early education and care. Both organizations recognize the critical importance of supporting the adults who care for children across Cape Cod.

Chief Program Officer Sarah Manion sees this as a win for the Cape Cod community, "The opportunity to partner with another wonderful nonprofit who, like us, is so committed to ensuring the healthy future of our youth, is a real gift. We are stronger together, and we are greatly looking forward to working with the team of Cape Cod Children's Place to deliver this important program over the coming months."

Also in attendance at this special meeting of the Commissioners were representatives from the office of Congressman Bill Keating, members of the County Assembly of Delegates, members of the state legislative delegation and other elected officials.
