homefront-YOF 0911A team of volunteers representing St. George Parish in Guilford paints and refurbishes a home in Guilford on May 11 as part of the annual HomeFront Program effort. Twenty-two parishes in the Archdiocese of Hartford helped make up some of the 4,000 volunteers who revitalized 68 homes and eight community centers this year on May 4 and 11, according to Sean O’Brien, executive director of HomeFront Inc. The program aims to deliver hands-on help and hope to low-income elderly and handicapped homeowners through a one-day home repair blitz. The Archdiocese of Hartford’s Office of Catholic Social Justice ministry has partnered with HomeFront for many years. "It’s a great parish social ministry activity that builds community," said Lynn Campbell, the ministry’s executive director. (Photo submitted)
