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 - Doug lived his life his way and when it came time to say, "Good Bye" to his family and many friends, he wanted to tell it also his way! He asked for it to be called "The Story of Doug." Doug was born in Boston on July 16, 1944 to Isabelle and Arthur Cloutier. At the time of his birth he only weighed two pounds and remained in the hospital for three months before coming home to Amesbury where he grew up. He graduated from AHS in 1962 and while there his love for sports began. He played baseball and football and installed that passion in his sons. He was Scott and Craig's Little League coach for many years and his team even won the championship a season or two! After high school he joined the Coast Guard for several years. His next career move was to become a second generation firefighter, a position he loved for 20 years. Doug used to say whenever an alarm sounded and he was on duty, Scott would jump on his bike and arrive at the scene along with the fire trucks. In later years, Scott joined as a third generation firefighter. It was such a proud moment when Dad pinned his badge on. Dad even shed a tear when he watched Scott drive a fire truck in a parade for the first time. After retiring from the fire department, Doug began his career at the Amesbury Post Office. He spent a memorable 26 years there. Larry Day, the Postmaster at the time, is one of Doug's dearest friends and to this day still calls Doug, "His Little Buddy." Over the years Doug hosted many P.O. parties, especially his 4th of July Gala where friends camped out, enjoyed cookouts, fireworks and a bonfire. Doug was the Grill Master and being the #1 Pool Boy, his pool was open to everyone and always pristine. He enjoyed 40 years with his wife, Carol, planning many trips together. One of his favorites was a cruise down the Mississippi River stopping at numerous historic places. Doug even started a craze for everyone wanting to collect river water as a souvenir after seeing him do it. He also enjoyed their visits to Aruba, sightseeing and relaxing at the poolside bar. There was one drink he liked so much he wrote the bartender and he sent Doug the recipe. Scott and Craig started playing hockey at a young age and Doug never missed a game near or far! Scott played hockey and football all through high school even being the Captain of his football team his senior year. Doug was so proud of Scott's accomplishments on the football field that after one game he jumped on the bus to hug Scott and Rodney as it was leaving! The love of hockey even carried over to his great-grandson Wyatt and 'Bumpa" was always there to cheer him on. One of Wyatt's favorite memories of Bumpa was that he always had homemade popcorn ready for him along with his favorite Bump fries in the "Man Cave" along with Wyatt's special chair. Sports were such a big part of his life he even entered the "Beat Burt Contest" weekly. His one goal was to win a coveted T-shirt. On his very last entry, he tied Burt with 12 correct, but one player had 13 right. His passion for sports later in life was attending his granddaughters McKenzie and Kaylie's basketball and softball games from grammar school through high school. He was the official score keeper in the stands where he meticulously recorded every play. The parents relied on Doug for "what just happened?" HIs proudest moment was to be asked to join in at center court on parent's night at McKenzie's game. He was known by McKenzie and Kaylie as the "Bestest Bumpa!" He was a fan of oldies and one of his favorites was "Watching My Flowers Grow" which he did for 20 years as they lived next door in the house Craig built and that song always brought tears to his eyes. They spent many fun times at the pool with their friends and Bumpa was always there ready to "Please cook us some chicken nuggets and Bump fries!" His "Man Cave" in the barn was his special place which he kept well stocked with snacks and everything possible to grill for anyone who stopped by and for the many parties he hosted. He was truly the Host with the Most!" He was a loving husband to Carol, father to Scott and Craig, father-in-law to Becky, grandfather to McKenzie, Kaylie, Kristen, Kelly, Sam and Chuck who always came to him for his doggie cookies, great-grandfather to Wyatt, Lucas and Noah, brother-in-law to Roy and Judy, uncle to Rob, Vicky, Robbie, Nicholas, Shelia, Steve and Lynzie. He spent his whole life sharing and caring deeply for his whole family. He said "Good Bye" on November 22, 2022 after a sudden illness with his wife Carol and son Scott and 'daughter' Becky by his side. His wish was to be cremated and for now "He is not gone, he is just away" and will be back home soon. He will always have a special place all his own in our hearts and lives on through our many fond memories forever. Thank you Bumpa for all the good times! Finally, he wanted to have a party with family and close friends in his Man Cave next summer and we will carry out his wishes. One last wish of Bumpa's was that no one sends flowers which he felt would be a waste of money and we all agree. Donations, if desired, can be made to his wife Carol to purchase a memorial stone that will be placed in a small park at their home where they will be buried together at the time Carol joins him for all eternity! Private arrangements by the EV Jutras & Sons Funeral Home in Amesbury.

Newburyport - Joan V. O'Brien, Professor emerita in Classics from Southern Illinois University, author of 'The Transformation of Hera', 'In the Beginning: Creation Myths from Ancient Mesopotamia, Israel and Greece' and 'The Guide to Sophocles' Antigone', died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 96. Born in Meriden, CT, she graduated from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, then taught in Hamden, CT for two years before entering the community of the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs as a novice in 1949. She began her teaching career in 1952 at Dominican Academy on E68th St. in New York, where she taught Latin and Greek by day and slept in her classroom at night. Every morning, she and her colleague would scurry around to clear the classroom of any traces of their personal belongings. She always told of the day the students found her stockings and other paraphernalia hanging in the bathroom. She received her Ph.D in Classics from Fordham University in 1961 and taught at Albertus Magnus College. In 1967 she left the Dominican community and joined the Classics department at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois, where she spent the next 30 years bringing the ancient Greek playwrights to vivid life, leading the students in the staging the plays of Sophocles and Aeschylus. Joan was a master teacher. She cried at the thought of retirement. She led many student groups to Rome and Greece, opening their eyes to the treasures of antiquity there. In researching her book The Transformation of Hera, Joan spent several summers bicycling to archeological digs on the island of Samos. She traveled widely, from Greece and Italy to the USSR and Egypt, swimming in the beloved ocean whenever possible, whether it be the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, the Adriatic or the Ionian! Joan did not wish to be called Doctor. She much preferred Joan. She was devoted to the Catholic Church and her commitment to the underdog was unwavering. She donated large portions of her income to the poor. She was always there to provide a listening ear to anyone in need. She dressed simply, paying no attention to the fashion of the day. She was very partial to her camouflage-design pork pie hat and for the last several years she sported a fleece hat with fur trim (a gift from a dear friend) that stopped people in their tracks. She looked like Russian royalty. Her attire was so odd that over the years, she was stopped several times by the cops, who thought she must have wandered away from some nearby asylum. Once, when she was staying in a motel to officiate at her niece's wedding, she decided to take an early morning walk from her hotel to find the local grocery store. A police cruiser stopped and the cop asked her what she was doing walking along such a busy road. This was not her first traffic stop. She answered, "I'm looking for a banana." He gave her a ride to the grocery store in the cruiser. Music was at the heart and soul of Joan O'Brien. She began piano lessons at age five and never stopped, playing Mozart, Grieg and her beloved Beethoven well into her 90's. She hosted numerous informal gatherings of faculty and friends at her home in Carbondale, which always featured food (potluck – Joan was no cook), laughter, piano-playing and singing –everything from 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling' to church hymns to The Hut-Sut Song. Every church choir she ever joined (and she joined plenty) was delighted to add her strong tenor voice. Singing was central to her life. She had many friends, former students and a band of friends from her Dominican days that never broke apart. They were all devoted to one another until the end. Her Catholic faith was her guiding light. She was devoted to the church, but at the same time very involved in the push for change, for the ordination of women. She was there for some of the first meeting of The Voice of the Faithful in their push for transparency about child abuse by priests. In her last years, she moved to Newburyport, MA to be near her niece. There, she quickly became a beloved figure, known simply to townsfolk as 'Aunt Joan'. She walked to Immaculate Conception Church for daily Mass, rain or shine, winter or summer. Traffic stopped when she crossed the street; lucky thing, because she often neglected to look both ways! She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews and her devoted community of friends, but she will have a joyous reunion with her God and all the saints who have preceded her! All are invited to Joan's Funeral Mass at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, December 9, 2022 at Immaculate Conception Church, followed by burial at St. Mary's Cemetery. Her niece Kate Sullivan and other family will greet guests in the Church from 10 to 10:30 a.m. before her Mass. The Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950 is assisting Ms. O'Brien's family with her arrangements.
