The January 11 issue of Mainebiz featured an article titled, "Leadership change at The Maine Children's Home after 23 years," beginning on the cover and continuing on to the center spread.
The article described the hard work the previous executive director, Sharon Abrams, did over the years, and how she successfully led the organization through some challenging economic times. It also discussed that The Maine Children's Home, in the midst of leadership transition, continues to have a bright future with the new executive director, Richard Dorian, coming on board.
