REM Award Honorees (2005) — Todd Winship (Catholic Charities of Maine)

Any organization would benefit from having someone like Todd on its team,” said Catholic Charities Maine CEO John Kerry. We have benefited from his “dedication to his family, work and community.” Todd has had a 25-year history of service to Catholic Charities. Now serving as quality services manager, Todd was also instrumental in partnering Catholic Charities Maine with the Kennebec Valley HomeStart Program, which contracts with private home daycare providers to provide Head Start slots in their homes. KVCAP named him Partner of the Year for those efforts. Todd’s organization of the Toy Box Project has benefited many families in times of trauma.

Faye Nicholson, REM Partner Chair and Executive Director of REM, is particularly proud to see that Todd is a 2005 recipient of the REM Award from Catholic Charities. “In my daycare days, many years ago, one of the visits I most looked forward to was Todd’s. He would bring me toys and ideas for working with the children and they loved being with him. His kind, playful spirit, wonderful sense of humor, and deeply caring nature were fun to share with someone who rarely had a chance to enjoy adult conversation. And he cared about what I cared about . . . kids! In an age when most women were leaving their homes to work I was nestled in mine because I loved working with children and being there to raise mine. Todd made me feel like this was a deeply worthy thing to do.”

We’re proud to name you our REM Award Honoree for 2005, Todd! We’re so glad you’re on our team!
