Champ Homes, a non-profit providing transitional housing and support services to Cape Cod residents, is hosting an Earth Day Cleanup of the popular 5k route that starts and ends at Veteran’s Beach in Hyannis on April 22, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Champ Homes participants, staff, board of directors, volunteers and community partners will be cleaning up litter that has accumulated on this heavily used, 3.2-mile loop.
“For over 30 years, Champ Homes and those we serve have been supported by our community and this is a way for us to give back,” stated Champ Homes Executive Director Adam Burnett.
Champ Homes’ mission is to provide transitional housing to adults on Cape Cod who are homeless or near homeless in a safe, compassionate, respectful environment, where they instill confidence and hope by providing life skills, mentoring, vocational opportunities, and self-advocacy. The goal of the program is to get clients back on their feet and to a place of regained self-worth and self-sufficiency. In 2020, of the Champ Homes’ participants who moved on from the program, 72 percent successfully transitioned to long-term sustainable housing.
