Community Services & Non profits
The Soup Kitchen in Provincetown (SKIP) provids hot, nourishing meals to Provincetown and Outer Cape residents, November through April, Monday through Friday.
SKIPs goal is to provide nutritious and healthful meals to all individuals who are either in need or seek community. The lack of proper nutrition for many in Provincetown and the Outer Cape is an ongoing challenge.
SKIPs mealtime also serves as a resource place for referrals to social programs for further help in other areas of need.

Provincetown Community Compact, The Compact, sponsors the annual Swim For Life & Paddler Flotilla, a benefit for AIDS, women’s health & the community since 1988. The Compact, established in 1993 by artist Jay Critchley, is a community-building and philanthropic organization that nurtures the vitality of the community, connecting the environment, the arts and the economy.
This year’s Swim for Life is a summerlong challenge, through September 12: Swimming in Place – our place, your place, encouraging swimmers, and others, to swim where they are or create a challenge for themselves. Invite your family, friends and coworkers to support you and pledge money while you: dance, jog, cook, bike, dribble a basketball, write, create – in your bathtub, on the beach, in a pond or pool or anywhere. Join us!
The Compact’s mission is to advance the health and cultural well being of the town, its people, and the natural environment of the Lower Cape. It also acts as fiscal sponsor (Think-ubator Project) for social, environmental and artistic projects and manages two Dune Shack residencies.

As both a school and community center, 46 Bradford Street has been a Provincetown asset for over a century. The Provincetown Commons will continue that tradition by creating a year-round working space for creative individuals and start-up businesses, and by maintaining 46 Bradford Street as a space for education and community gatherings.
The new intergenerational space, including established Provincetown artists and welcoming of the next generation, is critical to the town’s effort to both preserve and grow the arts as a vital part of our economy and as a facet of our tourism. And building a technological hub for media arts will enable new types of creative innovation to take root here.
The new space will operate with a membership model and is anticipated to include studios, a flexible classroom space, an exhibition space, shared desks, high-speed internet, meeting space, and digital media production facilities.
We are committed to developing educational programs and providing civic space for public programs that anchor 46 Bradford Street to its historic uses.
The Provincetown Part-Time Resident Taxpayers Association is a 100% volunteer-run organization of concerned taxpayers whose economic and cultural contributions in Provincetown are vital to the preservation and sustainability of the Town, and yet they are denied a meaningful voice, participation in any local government decision-making, or the right to vote. This fundamental unfairness is completely at odds with the spirit and rich democratic history of Provincetown. It also violates the very tenets upon which our country was founded. It is the mission of the PPRTA to promote awareness and correct this fundamental inequality.
