BFAIR Director Christine Meiklejohn Wins Workforce Hero Award from Providers’ Council

NORTH ADAMS — Christine Meiklejohn, director of ABI/MFP Residential Services at BFAIR, has been awarded the February 2023 Workforce Hero Award by the Providers’ Council, a statewide association of primarily nonprofit, community-based organizations that provide human services, health, education, and vocational support to one in 10 residents of the Commonwealth.

Meiklejohn said she is honored to receive this award, and that her heart has always been in human services. “My desire to work with people goes back as far as I can remember. When I was in school, I volunteered in programs for at-risk youth; this is where I got my first taste of what helping people could do. It did not take long to realize that even a few minutes of attention to someone could change the entire trajectory of their future. I knew back then human services would be for me.”
