It is only with the help of supporters just like you, that Cottage by the Sea is able to successfully run the programs that we do today.

Cottage by the Sea programs do not receive any government funding. We rely on the kindness and generosity of the community to continue moving forward as we have since the founding of our charity in 1890.
