CHAMP Homes has announced that Beth Wade will step down as its Executive Director on June 30, 2018.

Beth said, “As many of you know, it can be a challenge to follow a founding executive director. And it certainly has been a demanding 3 years. We have accomplished much of what we set out to do—and I am especially proud of the programmatic work we have done.

Recently, I became a grandmother; and I would like to spend a bit more time with my grandsons.  So, at this pivotal point in my life, I have decided to explore some new educational and vocational opportunities.

Seventeen years ago, I walked into CHAMP Homes for the first time.  I am ever grateful to have met Paul and Carolyn Hebert and to have been invited into this precious and grace-filled work.  CHAMP Homes is in my heart—and as I told the board, I remain committed to the organization and the individuals it serves—just in new ways.”

CHAMP Homes Board President Mark Boudreau added: “We are very grateful for Beth’s hard work over these last years. There’s a talented team in place to support the program and participating residents. In the months ahead, the board will revisit its strategic plan and hire an interim director. Fortunately, Beth plans to stay until June to make for a smooth transition.”

CHAMP Homes was established in 1991 and since then has helped over 2,600 individuals on Cape Cod.  It currently provides housing to up to 50 residents, aged 18 to 80.  Many of these residents are at-risk individuals facing mental, physical and emotional challenges or are recovering from addiction and have never experienced a loving family environment. CHAMP Homes is a place where people receive the gift of security, as well as opportunities to attain the tools and experience necessary to become self-supportive through education, career and life skills training.
