Sandy Simmons has been working in the field  for over 15 years, and has served in her current position since July 2006. Sandy is a nationally Certified Information and Referral Specialist in Aging (CIRS-A).  In fact, she is the only CIRS-A in Baltimore City.

This certification is a measurement of demonstrated ability in the field of I&R reflecting the knowledge, skills, attitudes and work-related behaviors needed to successfully execute responsibilities.  Information and Referral (I&R) is the art and science of bringing people and services together. SMOC creates and maintains a database of programs and services to clients and makes that information available to individuals and the communities through a variety of communication channels. Without Certified Information and Referral Specialists, people in vulnerable situations must negotiate a maze of human service organizations in the hope of finding the one they need.

We hope to assist seniors with a single point of contact that provides confidential assessment, support, choice and empowerment.

OUR COMMUNITY

The St. Mary’s Outreach Center (SMOC) primarily serves lower income older adults in the 21211 Zip Code.

This service area encompasses the neighborhoods of Hampden, Medfield, Hoes Heights, Remington, Woodberry, and Wyman Park.

People over 65 represent 16.3% of the total population, as compared with 11.8% citywide.

The majority of the 1,700 people over 65+ are longtime residents of the area.  Some are second generation residents.

SMOC currently serves 30% of the senior population.  SMOC estimates that another 30% need some services.

SMOC clients may be older homeowners living alone; grandparents, or great grandparents, raising children; residents of senior housing apartments; and, people at risk of becoming homeless.

Due to younger, more upwardly mobile people moving into the community in recent years, lower income elderly tend to be more and more hidden.  They represent a significant portion of the 7.7% of the households living in poverty in a community where 29% of the households now have incomes exceeding $60,000 annually.
