Information for SHINE - Fuel Assistance - SNAP Programs

Learn about resources that are available to you locally. COA Outreach Coordinator Emily Thompson can help you learn about available local resources and current happenings in our community.

SNAP (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) can be used to supplement your food budget costs. Money saved through SNAP could be used toward your medical costs. SNAP is income-based, but it is your income after shelter and medical expenses are deducted.

Home heating and energy assistance (a.k.a. Fuel Assistance) season runs from November 1st through April 30th and is available for eligible homeowners and renters, including households whose cost of heat is included in the rent (12 month assistance in that case). It pays directly to your primary heating source vendor, and automatically includes electric and telephone bill discounts if you are eligible, saving you money to use for medical or other expenses.

The SHINE Program (Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone) provides free health insurance information, counseling and assistance to all Massachusetts residents with Medicare.

Amesbury - On Wednesday, January 18, 2023, Richard Alan ("Rick") Field of Amesbury, beloved father, brother, grandfather, and friend, passed away at the age of 69 after a brief illness. Rick was born on December 17, 1953, to Jack and Rita Field and was a lifelong resident of Amesbury. He was a graduate of Amesbury High School and worked as a manager in both sheet metal fabrication and retail for forty years. He married Jackie Tremblay in 1972, and they had two children of whom he was extremely proud. Though the marriage eventually ended, Rick and Jackie remained close friends until the end of his life. Rick was known for his outgoing personality and silly sense of humor. He was happiest when he was spending time with people, whether it was with his customers at the Circle K store that he managed for many years, camping in New Hampshire and Maine with his family and friends, going out for seafood dinners with his sister and niece, or chatting with his new neighbors at Heritage Towers. He had no patience for reading books, rainy days, slow computers, or politics. He enjoyed watching football, taking scenic drives through New Hampshire, and spoiling his seven grandchildren with their favorite treats. He bragged about his kids to anyone who would listen, visited his grandsons every Sunday, always called his daughter "Pumpkin," and loved his (late) cat Roscoe. Being a dad brought out the best in him. Rick was very open about his struggles with alcohol addiction and his journey to sobriety. He had great empathy for those who struggled with anxiety and addiction - he and his family were immensely proud to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of his sobriety on July 21, 2022. He used to say that if he could do it, then he was sure it was possible for anyone. Rick will be deeply missed. He was preceded in death by his father, Jack, his mother, Rita, his brothers Wayne and Mike, his nephew Mike Jr., and his niece Theresa Whittier. He is survived by his daughter Wendi and her husband Christopher of Glastonbury, CT, his son Jeff and his wife Carrie Ann Conroy of Salisbury, MA, his sister Diane Donovan of Amesbury, his brother Gary Field and his wife Dawn of Amesbury, his brother Jack Field and his wife Paula of North Hampton, NH, his ex-wife and friend, Jackie Tremblay of Newton, NH, his grandchildren Owen, Jackson, Alex, Jacob, Colby, Willa, and Zinnia, and several nieces and nephews. A private service will be held at E.V. Jutras Funeral Home in Amesbury, MA. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Rick's name to Windrush Farm in North Andover, MA (https://www.windrushfarm.org).

She also left behind her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Maureen was preceded in her passing by her parents Eleanor and Charles Downey and two sisters Pat Caroll and Carole Carragher. Maureen had passions for flowers, gardening and all activities her children and grandchildren pursued. She was a contributing member of the St. Joseph's Sodality Mother's Club which published the Mother's Bounty cookbook. She loved day trips throughout New England and loved the beaches and coastline above all. Maureen was also considered quite creative preparing for festivities and celebrations for family and friends. She was born in July 1935 and was a graduate of St. James High School in Haverhill. At the request of the family there will be a private service and any donations can be made to the High Pointe House in Haverhill, MA. Arrangements were by the E.V.

US Special Committee on Aging

The United States Senate's Special Committee on Aging, currently chaired by Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), was established in 1961 as a temporary committee. It was granted permanent status in February, 1977. While special committees have no legislative authority, they can study issues, conduct oversight of programs, and investigate reports of fraud and waste. Note: Senior victims of fraud can report it to the Fraud Hotline.

The Special Committee on Aging has served as a focal point in the Senate for discussion and debate on matters relating to older Americans, and often submits its findings and recommendations for legislation to the Senate. The Committee additionally publishes materials of assistance to those interested in public policies which relate to the elderly.

For more information, visit the Committee's press releases page. It is a gold mine of legislative issue and hearing information, and resource links, plus: you can sign up for e-News; order publications; view the latest list of issues and press releases; get prescription assistance ... and more!
