Save the Date(s) – 2016 Bob Murray Housing With Love Walk

The Bob Murray Housing With Love Walk will begin in Provincetown on Monday, July 11, 2016, and finish in Falmouth on Sunday, July 21, 2016. The Walk benefits nine local agencies across the Cape who work together as a team to provide safe and affordable housing and to prevent homelessness for local individuals and families. The following agencies benefitting from this year’s Walk are Champ Homes, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Homeless Prevention Council, Housing Assistance Corp., Falmouth Housing Corp., Homeless not Hopeless, Community Development Partnership, Chatham Ecumenical Council for Housing, and Harwich Ecumenical Council for Housing.  For all nine agencies, the Walk is a way to bridge the funding gap between local need and state/Federal funding. To date, the Walk has raised over $4.5 million. This year’s fundraising goal is $250,000.  For more information, view “Housing with Love Walk” Brochure 2016 or contact: Bob Murray Housing With Love Walk, P.O. Box 2192, Teaticket, MA  02536.
