The core of W.O.F.F.’s mission is to provide Cape Cod fishing families with an active support network during times of transition and unforeseen circumstances. Through our Fishing Community Fund, we offer emergency financial assistance and long-term financial planning. We also work to connect families with resources to help thrive at home and in their businesses.

With the support of the Chatham Fund of the Cape Cod Foundation, we have developed a simple application to help fishermen and their families reach out for help. If you or your family needs our assistance, download the Fishing Community Assistance Application and follow the steps on the first page.

There are a number of state and local agencies that provide resources to families in transition. Here is a contact list of available Resources for Cape Cod Fishing Families.
