News From The Executive Director

FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Regina Moller
 
September 2014
 
We have a new name! In order to more accurately reflect the diversity of services that we offer, we have changed our name to Noank Community Support Services, Inc.  In addition to the programs in our three group homes, we also offer the DCF credentialled services of Diagnostic and Functional Assessments, Supervised Visitation, Support Staff, Temporary Care Services, and Therapeutic Support Staff. We also cover the full age spectrum now, including community-based recovery support services to adults with chronic mental illness. We value all of our collaborations with the community and will continue to bring hope for recovery to all our clients.  Even our new logo has the rays of that beacon of hope!
 
Yours in Partnership,
Regina Moller

Hello to all our friends of Noank Group Homes & Support Services (NGHSS)!
 
I began three months ago as the new Executive Director at NGHSS and am very excited and hopeful, as I partner with you in delineating and supporting the future work of this agency! The process of change is never easy. You are very fortunate that the previous Executive Director was able to provide a smooth transition for my arrival. I have been taking time to get to understand all the great work being done at NGHSS, and to meet all of our staff. I am also using my experience in the behavioral health field to thoughtfully evaluate areas for any needed improvement and to consider growth opportunities. We have a wonderfully experienced staff and a long history of providing trauma-informed and gender-responsive care from which to build on. We will continue to nurture our relationships within our communities and to uphold the great reputation of Noank Group Homes and Support Services as a quality service provider. We will only get better, and I am looking forward to our journey together!
 
 
 
Yours in Partnership,

Now more than ever we need your support!

This year has brought tremendous change to Noank Community Support Services. 

More recently, we have expanded to offer the following additional services:


  • A group home for pregnant and parenting teens and their infants and young children
  • Community Housing Assistance Program (CHAP) for young adults who age out of state foster care and pursue higher education and employment
  • Community-based and in-home services for children of all ages and their families, as well as for the chronically mentally ill adult.


This service array indeed reflects growth for our agency!  However, with such growth come new challenges to meet, despite the ever-shrinking amount of state funding. We are expected to increase services, while contract amounts decrease. Being a smaller agency with more limited resources, we are unable to compete successfully for some of the grant dollars that are grabbed up by the larger agencies. At this difficult time, therefore, your support is critical to assure the provision of these well-needed services in our community!


Thanks to the overwhelming support at our third annual Gala last year, we raised over $28,000. This year, we will be holding our fourth annual Gala on November 1st. With your support we hope to exceed last year’s success. The event will include live music, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres donated by Steak Loft and Go Fish, and a silent and live auction.


The funds that we raise will ensure that Noank Community Support Services will continue to offer our residents support and care which has a lasting impact on their lives. Please read on to hear how some of our former residents have benefited from their experience with the organization:

"I was a hard nut to crack when I lived at High Street House in the 1980’s. I trusted no one and no one had a reason to trust me. I wasn’t easy to live with or to like. I didn’t like myself. But no one on the staff gave up on me. They saw something good in me that I couldn’t see. After a while, I smiled a little more and started to believe that maybe I was good enough to love and be loved. I don’t know how my life would have turned out if I didn’t live in a group home like High Street House."   JLB


 “I lived at High Street House” many years ago and I often thought it should have been called High Street Home because that’s what it was to me.  I had parents but I never felt like I was living in a family until I went to live at High Street House in Mystic. I felt loved and cared for by people that weren’t even related to me.  When my two children were much younger, they would ask me where I lived when I was their age - - I told them I lived in Mystic with my “family” in a home where there was fun, laughter, discipline, and love. That’s how I tried to raise my kids, too. "   M.B.
