In presenting the grants for Winning Home, Director Albert “Chip” Curran, Jr. said, “This year’s grants represent an important milestone for Winning Home. In the span of seven years we have been able to provide over $1,000,000 in grants to deserving organizations helping kids and families every day. The organizations that we presented grants to this year are working on the front lines each day to make a difference in people’s lives.


We are pleased to continue to support their hard work and dedication to families.” The Board was also pleased to announce that it had elected Thomas Martin as President. Mr. Martin replaces Mark Sullivan. Said Mr. Curran “Mark has served the board of Winning Home admirably for many years through its difficult transition from landowner to charitable trust.


We thank him for his years of service to this community. We are looking ahead to the leadership of Tom Martin as we move forward with this new phase of Winning Home’s mission.” The Winning Home property was put into trust over 100 years ago to be used as an orphanage and for the support of needy children. Since its conversion from a landowner to a charitable trust, Winning Home has made grants of $1,005,000 to area charitable organizations serving children and families. Winning Home (www.winninghome.org) is a private, non-profit charitable organization to provide “services and support to children who are economically, socially, physically, emotionally or mentally handicapped or disadvantaged and their families”.


Winning Home is governed by a Board of Directors under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The grant program of Winning Home, Inc. reflects a strong emphasis on basic human services, particularly organizations and programs that benefit children and youth in the greater Woburn, Winchester and Lexington areas.
