LANCASTER – Amy McCafferty chose to pursue a career as a social worker for a full heart, not a “fat wallet.”

She works as the crisis line supervisor with Fairfield County 2-1-1, helping to answer questions clients call the organization with, and she also is a representative payee for clients with mental illnesses or developmental disabilities.

McCafferty was nominated for the Friend of ADAMH Award this year, and was one of three winners.

The Fairfield County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Board selects up to three people annually who represent ADAMH’s mission to help fight addiction and provide services to those in need.

The awards were presented March 22. Dawn Campbell Lavey, owner and operator of the Starrit and Dalan houses, and Tamara Bartek, with the Fairfield County Municipal Court, were the other two winners.
