Gándara Center’s February newsletter is now online. You can read about Lois Nesci being appointed our chief executive officer. She was most recently Chief Operating Officer at the Center of Human Development in Springfield.

You can also read about Gándara employees collecting emergency supplies in a statewide relief drive and bringing them to earthquake-torn Puerto Rico last month (including more than 20 photos of the trip. There was plenty of media coverage of this humanitarian mission—both television and print—including Liz Román’s fantastic story in Masslive.

In addition, Western Mass News interviewed Clinical Supervisor Alisha Khoury-Boucher about “gray death” heroin, a type of heroin reported in Louisiana containing fentanyl and carfentanil, which is 100 times more powerful than fentanyl.

Save the date: our 6th Annual Frozen Yogurt 5K is Sunday, August 23, in downtown Northampton.
