She was a junior in high school when she knew what her life’s work would be. “I was part of a mentorship program even then working with troubled kids. I mentored a first- and sixth-grader once a week. I’d go into their school and we’d talk,” said Margaret Richardson, the Children’s Services Regional Clinical Manager at Meridian Services.

“I was born to do this,” said Richardson as she looked out upon the throngs of families running and playing Saturday afternoon at the Gresham Center’s annual Fun Fair. Richardson coordinates the event each year. “As much as stress as this is to pull together, it’s so important to give families something to do together. It’s free food, free entertainment and free information to resources available for families in the community. I don’t know of any other place where you can get this.”
