CARIBOU — The Aroostook Mental Health Center has been recognized by Displaced Homemakers Program for its role in enhancing the effectiveness of that program. Greg Disy, director AMHC’s community support program, received the award on behalf of the health center from Linda Senechal, director of the
the Central Aroostook Displaced Homemakers Program.
The award recognized AMHC’s practice of employing local participants in the Displaced Homemakers Program, which is designed to help single parents in transition from being unpaid laborers in the home to positions of economic self-sufficiency. Three participants were successful in securing employment with AMHC.
“We’re so pleased with the placements,” said Senechal, “not only because AMHC supports our program, but also because the women were hired into good jobs, with a generous benefit package, good wages and the prospect of excellent training.”
In receiving the award, Disy commented, “It’s a pleasure to receive the award on behalf of AMHC. We look forward to an ongoing collaborative relationship with Displaced Homemakers in the future.”
