A Letter from Paul C. O’Shea Crisis Stabilization Unit
opens at 41 Mason St. in Salem
"Summertime and the living is not so easy" - there used to be a time
in this business, many years ago, where it seemed that there was a
summertime lull. Given the hectic nature of all our activities, this
summer has been quite busy for all of us. A lot is happening in the
wider world of HES.
As most of you know by now, Phil Salzman, our Vice President for HES President & CEO Paul O’Shea & CSU Director Dezra Kenney.
Prevention Services has accepted a new position with U-Mass
Medical Center. He has been with the agency for twelve years and Cornerstones Haverhill - 1st Annual Dog Show
during that time his considerable expertise and skill in the areas of

ices that he has developed for HES. I am happy to say that Phil will
continue to be available to us in a consulting role as a community
prevention liaison. We all wish him good luck in his new endeavor.
We are finally near a mortgage closing on the Nike site, which at this A look inside
point is about 75% complete. Everyone is very excited about the new
facilities and we will plan a grand opening once that project has been
completed, some time late fall or early winter. A Letter from Paul C. O’Shea . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1
