Sound is an incredible resource in the New London Community. They are a place where individuals with mental and behavioral health needs and substance abuse needs go to find supports and tools to help them in their unique paths to recovery. I have personally witness struggling individuals find happiness and health in was they never thought possible. In addition to helping their clients, they are also an incredible place to work. Staff are valued, encouraged, and given the opportunity to become their best selves. I am proud to be a part of the Sound Community and to make an impact on the lives of others.

I joined SCSI 6 months ago and it was one of the wisest decisions I ever made!!! I have the honor and pleasure of developing and enhancing clinical programs to best serve our clients and our community. I have never worked in a place where you can find the CEO high fiving clients as he walks into the building because he takes the time to KNOW the clients we all serve! Everyone jumps in and everyone has the same vision, and that is to do our very best to create access for more community members to receive a variety of services so they can live their lives to the fullest! WE are all a team here and I am so fortunate to be a part of this agency and this community! ~ Director of Outpatient Services

I have had the pleasure of working at SCSI for 7 years. During that time I have been treated fairly, had my thoughts and ideas encouraged and supported, and given many opportunities to advance my career. SCSI nurtures the development of their staff and has a deliberate approach towards consistent agency improvement.

The people served at SCSI are treated as part of a family, without stigma. Every attempt is made by SCSI to serve our customers with dignity, respect, empathy, and to support them on their journey of recovery.

Sound Community Services is an agency that has navigated through a tough transition over the past few years. Gino DeMaio, CEO has to make difficult decisions regarding the replacement of underperforming staff who are not committed to bringing in professional, client-focused who are focused on outcomes and a better future.
Gino DeMaio has also instilled a new vision, a new level of transparency across the agency.

Having to overcome the negative legacy left by the last leader, Gino DeMaio and his team have given new hope to the community.

I have worked in a software vendor capacity with Sound Community Services over the last 8 months. It is always mentioned that healthcare in general is slow to change, and this belief is probably even more profound for the behavioral health community. Gail Lawson and her team at Sound are an exception to this widely-held belief. They have creatively used technology to drive greater productivity but, more importantly, to deliver high quality care to those societal members most in need. They possess great attitudes, are enthusiastic about their mission, and deliver a great service to their clients. One doesn't run across high-performing and ethical organizations very often, so it leaves a lasting impression when you do come across one. Sound Community Services has certainly made a lasting impression on me.
