Nancy joined Communitas in 2007 as a part-time, In-Home Supports Mentor. Over the next few years, she took-on additional roles within Communitas in its Life Choices day program and the former School to Work Program. Prior to working in the Human Service field, she raised three boys, one of which was diagnosed at a very young age with developmental disabilities and autism. This diagnoses changed Nancy’s life and from that day on, she devoted herself to advocating for him and others with disabilities. In 2009, Nancy was asked to become the In-Home Supports Coordinator. At that time she had 1 month old twin boys at home, but knew she could not turn down the opportunity.
Nancy is very proud of this great program, her staff, and all the individuals in it. Her son with disabilities is now an adult and attends the Communitas Day Program in Burlington and works three days a week at Market Basket.
