JO&CO will bring their original sound and power house vocals to Aselton Park in Hyannis in a concert to support the Homeless Prevention Council in Orleans. The free concert will be hosted by DJ Suzanne Tonaire from Dunes 102.

The Homeless Prevention Council, provides long term, professional counseling and guidance to those at risk of becoming homeless. This includes advocacy/access to housing programs and funding, budgeting, and negotiation of rent and mortgage back-payments.

Lead singer of JO&CO Joanna Meager knows firsthand the support the Council provides: "The Homeless Prevention Council personally helped my family out of a difficult situation we found ourselves in a few years ago. It really feels good to organize this concert to help give back and raise funds to help other community members."
