A teacher, beloved companion, mom, and glue of her family, Joan continues to be cherished by many. She taught in special education teacher in the Natick schools for 17 years before joining the South Middlesex Opportunity Council, and working with women coming out of the Framingham Women’s Prison to help them get their GEDs and a new footing in life. This resulted in the establishment of the Joan H. Brack Adult Learning Center at SMOC, the first endeavor and legacy supported by the foundation which honors her life. We are grateful to many of you who continue to celebrate Joan's spirit and support the ongoing work of her foundation.


The Chrystine M. Sullivan Memorial Foundation was created in 1999 as a 501 ©(3) public charity by her family and friends to continue her memory by fighting cancer and supporting those that are enduring this terrible disease.

The mission of Chrystine M. Sullivan Memorial Foundation is to provide assistance for treatment and other support services of cancer patients on the South Shore of Massachusetts who could not otherwise afford it. 100% of our fundraising efforts go directly to supporting these causes.

The Foundation continues to grow. We thank all those that have supported the Foundation. Chrystine would be so happy knowing that the money raised will help those with this terrible disease.

Mildred's Dream Foundation was created in appreciation of the legacy and lifetime work of Mildred Piltch, lovingly referred to as “Millie” by those who knew her well. Millie’s passion for and commitment to making the world a better place was evident in everything she said and did.  MDF honors her passions: helping those with physical or mental health challenges, as well as their families; eliminating violence and abuse while supporting survivors of such trauma; and providing the best education possible for everyone.  In celebration of the life she lived, her children have created the foundation in her honor.  They are hopeful that others will help make Mildred’s dream a reality and make a difference in the world.


The Haley Cremer Foundation was founded in 2015 in loving memory of an outgoing,enthusiastic, and compassionate individual.

Haley was tragically taken from us on Father’s Day, June 15, 2014. At the time of her death, Haley was preparing to enter her junior year at Simmons College to continue her studies toward a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She is remembered as someone who cared deeply for others, always providing encouragement to those around her. We honor Haley’s legacy through our recognition and support of individuals and organizations exhibiting four core values:
Demonstrating Compassion for others; Instilling Perseverance in the face of hardship; Fostering Insight and recovery; Championing Renewal of spirit.
