Today, Thursday, July 14, 2016, the annual Bob Murray Housing with Love Walk began Day Four at Champ Homes in Hyannis. Volunteers walked down Main Street, Hyannis in their yellow t-shirts promoting homelessness prevention and affordable housing on the Cape and Islands. Representatives from the Cape and Islands Regional Network on Homelessness joined walkers who began in Provincetown on Monday on their journey to Sandwich.
