Darien House Tour: Homes with Heart which will support Liberation Programs and other local non-profits will be on on June 6.
This annual event, now in its fifth year, features six fabulous homes that represent a range of architectural and decorating styles and are selected for their diversity, location and, of course, beauty. Attendees can also enjoy a lunch at the Country Club of Darien.
Organized by the First Congregational Church of Darien to raise funds for local nonprofit organizations, the Darien House Tour: Homes with Heart has raised over $250,000 for nearly 20 local nonprofits since its inception in 2015. Each year the committee chooses a lead beneficiary to receive a larger portion of the funds. The committee has chosen Liberation Programs as the lead beneficiary for 2019. Liberation Programs’ mission is to empower people and their families to be free of the disease of addiction by providing targeted solutions that restore lives and strengthen our community. Other beneficiaries include: ABC House, At Home in Darien, Building One Community, Carver Foundation of Norwalk, Child Guidance Center of Southern CT, Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Elderhouse, Feed My Starving Children, Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County, Connecticut Institute for Refugees & Immigrants, Inspirica, New Covenant House, Open Door Shelter, Pacific House, Person-to- Person, STAR, and The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis and Education.
