During the COVID-19 health pandemic, the Thom Anne Sullivan Center has gratefully received a variety of contributions from generous community partners. Donations like this mean so much to the program staff as well and children and families we serve. We are incredibly grateful to everyone involved in obtaining these valued supports.
The Greater Lowell Health Alliance (GLHA) generously granted a COVID-19 relief grant to provide much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Thom Anne Sullivan Center. This equipment will be integral to promote the safest possible to return to the workplace for all staff and will also help the program prepare for a return to limited in-person visits.

The Faith Home for Children was incorporated in 1884. “For the purpose of receiving and caring for orphans, neglected and destitute children and to provide food, clothing, lodging, and education for the same”. It was unique in two ways; first, it was run entirely by faith. The public was never solicited for funds. When there was any need, invariably some person contributed what was needed. Secondly, it was not an institution; it was a real home, where from early childhood thru High School, the children received a Christian education. It was the way “day-care” was handled in those days. This continued until the 1950’s when it was no longer viable, mostly due to State rules and space requirements. Property was put into a Trust which now provides help for children in the Greater Lowell area.
