Operation Ride for Hope
Learn to Cope Tonight at 7PM

In partnership with Town Taxi of Cape Cod and Learn to Cope, the Yarmouth Police Department has created a new program that will help family members of people addicted to opioids receive help and support.

Anyone from the towns of Yarmouth, Dennis, or Barnstable who needs a ride to and or from our weekly Learn to Cope meetings can call Town Taxi of Cape Cod at 508.775.5555 between 6:30PM and 9:30PM and a ride will be provided and paid by private donations.
