Hyannis, April 30, 2018 –  The CHAMP Homes board of directors is pleased to announce that Adam Burnett was appointed as its new Executive Director. 

Adam Burnett joined CHAMP Homes mid 2017 to oversee the finances. This role quickly expanded to focus more on the operations of the organization.  

He says: ”I’m very excited to take my love of CHAMP Homes and the 50 formerly homeless individuals we serve to the next level by becoming the next Executive Director. 

Adam Burnett, a native of Cape Cod, graduated from Barnstable High School and went on to Bentley University in Waltham, MA to earn a B.S. in Managerial Economics.  While at Bentley, he volunteered with Oxfam America and in a variety of schools helping at-risk youth with their reading competency.  After graduating, Adam worked at City Roots High School in South Boston as a math teacher and life skills coach.  Shifting gears, Adam had a 10-year career as a regional manager of several Boston restaurants.

Adam met his wife Andrea, a teacher in Barnstable Public Schools, and they were married in 2004.  They moved back to the Cape in 2009 and they have two beautiful children Abby and Ben, who love nothing more than coming in once a month to cook for the CHAMP Homes community.  

Outside of CHAMP Homes, Adam volunteers his time with a variety of organizations.  He has served on the Board of Directors of Cape Cod Young Professionals, and Barnstable Little League as well as being their treasurer.  He coaches his son’s baseball team and is the den leader of his Cub Scout Den.  He enjoys cycling, hiking and travel, and especially camping with his family.

CHAMP Homes was established in 1991 and since then has helped over 2,600 individuals on Cape Cod.  It currently provides housing for up to 50 residents, ages 18 to 80.  Many of these residents are at-risk individuals with 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.
