Homes with Hope sponsored the ninth annual Castles in the Sand sandcastle build-a-thon at Compo Beach in Westport on Saturday, May 15. The celebrity judges were Peter Cadoux and Miggs Burroughs

Homes with Hope, a not-for-profit agency with an IRS 501(c)(3) designation, is a local grassroots response to the tragedy of homelessness. With a caring professional staff and the help of more than 400 volunteers, Homes with Hope assists people who have lost their ability to lead normal lives.

Homes with Hope's mission is to provide facilities and supportive services in a structured environment that enable homeless people in the communities we serve to achieve an independent and self-sufficient life. We will accomplish this through permanent affordable supportive housing, casework and supportive services, emergency shelter, food and meals and the life skills training critical in preventing homelessness from reoccurring.
