FARMINGTON — Safe Voices recently honored executive vice president of Franklin Community Health Network, Gerald Cayer, as one of three Community Hero recipients at its annual meeting.

Cayer, of Waterville, responded to the 2011 domestic violence homicides with No Excuses: A Call to Men, an initiative to engage men against domestic violence in Franklin County. He was also instrumental in offering ownership of the Farmington office building to Safe Voices for no cost.

Also honored as community heroes were Jolene Lovejoy of Rumford who organized a private fundraising drive for Safe Voices in Rumford and the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic, an arm of the USM Law School, that represents Safe Voices’ clients in hearings and family domestic violence cases.
