Community services coordinator appointed

Sadie Simone
Concord and Carlisle residents now have a single point of contact to help locate important town services, agencies and programs. Sadie Simone, the new Community Services Coordinator, provides resource assistance and referrals that focus on the particular requirements of individuals and families in need.

The position was established in late 2004 by the Concord Town Manager's Office with a grant from the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest.

"There is a wealth of accessible resources in Concord and Carlisle available to families and individuals for basic needs such as food, healthcare and housing. My goal is to locate the right services for residents and then assist them in obtaining the help they need to live in this area," said Simone.

Examples of assistance include facilitating the paperwork for food stamps and public housing, locating physicians that accept public health insurance, and directing families to a wide variety of human service agencies for further support. Consultation is free of charge to Concord and Carlisle residents.

Simone holds a masters degree in public health. Previously she worked as the program coordinator at two urban group homes for adults with persistent mental illness and conducted research for the Institute for Community Health.
