The Board of Directors of Family Service Association of Greater Elgin is pleased to announce that Bernadette (Bernie) May, LCSW has been hired as the Agency’s new Executive Director. Bernie May started with the Association in 2012 as its Clinical Director. Bernie’s expertise and commitment helped elevate her to the position of Associate Director in 2015. She has worked in community mental health for the past 17 years and has a passion for serving people in their homes, schools, and communities. Bernie worked closely with Lisa LaForge, our recently departed and greatly missed Executive Director who at the time of her passing had served the Association with passion and dedication for over 30 years. Lisa’s are very tough shoes to fill, but the Board of Directors is confident, after a thorough search was conducted, that Bernie May is the best candidate to step into this role, keep Lisa’s spirit alive, make a big impact, and shine like the star that we know Bernie to be.
Bernie is committed to supporting staff in their challenging roles, continuing the quality of care that the Agency has been providing for nearly 90 years, raising awareness of mental health issues through advocacy, and strengthening ties in the community through collaboration. The Board of Directors congratulates Bernie and looks forward to working with her.
Family Service Association of Greater Elgin Area is dedicated to quality, accessible. client-centered and holistic behavioral health services.
