The sun beamed down on the gleaming Hyannisport Sea Street Beach, casting a warm glow on those enjoying a recent cloudless Sunday morning. Sailboats cut across the choppy waters offshore, while on the beach a rowdy game of volleyball was getting underway. Parking attendants sat quietly in folding chairs, rising only when a car, truck or van pulled up, their occupants eagerly awaiting the beach day ahead of them.

A short distance away, in a shady park off the beach, volunteers mingled with members of the local homeless community, helping them fill their backpacks with clean socks and first aid kits and serving them what might be their only reliable meal that day.
