People & Places – Wendy Harrington
|CHERRYFIELD, ME — I joined the Mission in 2002. My husband Charlie and I worked with Gary DeLong to create the EdGE. The EdGE model included working with children, their families, and community. My work was, and is, centered on families and community and the belief that children thrive when they have the support of the people around them. In 2007, I became the Director of Service Programs and began developing programs offering support to our neighbors — including EdGE families.|
My favorite place has always been beside the ocean. My mother grew up on Nantucket in a fishing family. She instilled her love of the ocean in me. For the past 19 years, I have lived on Eastern Harbor and wake up to this beautiful sight every morning. This is my favorite place because of its beauty and because of the memories it holds for me.
