On October 1, 1988 Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod was founded as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Dick and Phoebe Soule of Orleans first brought the idea of a Habitat affiliate to Cape Cod. Our first home was dedicated in Wellfleet in November 1989. Since that time, we have built at least one home in every town on Cape Cod and all 15 towns have donated at least one land parcel. From day one, we have tithed 10% of our unrestricted donations to build Habitat homes in developing nations.
