You can also learn about the Network’s 30 year history by checking out this short video.

We are incredibly proud of how much we are able to accomplish—both through our programs and campaigns—with a budget under $200,000 and a staff of three, two of whom work part-time. 

None of our accomplishments would be possible without the generous support of our donors. If you have given a gift during our current appeal, thank you so much! If you have not, but would like to support the Network, you can do so here.

Winchester is a community that is grounded in respect for every individual, and therefore protects all residents, employees, business owners, students and visitors in the enjoyment and exercise of human and civil rights. It is town policy to ensure equal treatment and opportunity to all individuals regardless of race, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, country of origin, immigration status, religion, ideology, socio-economic status, health, sexual orientation, age, military status, or disability.
