Every year HMEA throws a party to celebrate the many accomplishments and achievements of the people supported by the agency, as well as staff members. This year the agency marks its 26th year of hosting the Annual Awards Night celebration, which will be held on Wednesday, October 8th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Boston – Milford Hotel.
Sixteen people will be receiving awards this year ranging from Outstanding Employee Award, which recognizes up to two individuals served through Employment Services and/or TRACS program to the Board of Directors Award potentially recognizing four direct care staff members from Residential, Day, Children’s Services, and Family Supports.
Nine other categories of awards will also be presented to at least one individual this year. Five are Shared Living Provider, Volunteer, Team, HMEA, and Advocacy Awards; three memorial awards, named after three outstanding individuals in their respective fields who had been employed by HMEA; Eric Rodgers, Kevin McMullen and Kathy Gilchrist, and a Citizen’s Award given to someone outside the agency who made a significant contribution to the people HMEA supports.
HMEA congratulates all the winners of these prestigious awards and applaud their many successes.
