The Housing Assistance Corporation has held a telethon to benefit the NOAH (No Other Available Housing) shelter in Hyannis for the past 10 years, and on Wednesday, Dec. 11, the newly named Shelter Cape Cod Telethon will expand its impact.

HAC will use the five-hour telethon, which runs from 4 to 9 p.m., to benefit the NOAH Shelter as well as "Angel House in Hyannis, which houses woman recovering from opiate addiction and their children; Carriage House in North Falmouth, which houses women and their children; and the Village at Cataumet in Bourne, which houses homeless families."

The program, which will feature musical performances and stories from formerly homeless Cape Codders, will be filmed at Cape Cod Community Media Center at 17 Shad Hole Road in Dennisport.

It will be broadcast on community access channels across the Cape and online at www.capemedia.org.

The goal of the Shelter Cape Cod Telethon is to raise $100,000 for the four shelters. Last year, the program raised $90,000 for the NOAH Shelter.

Sheltering the homeless is a very worthy cause. But, as with other non-profits with catchy names, I'd like to see an independent outside audit performed that would show how the money has been spent. How many of the donated dollars and government grants go directly to those in need? What are their administrative costs?
