Cen­ter names new di­rec­tor

Kim­berly Cadugan will take over as ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Com­mu­nity In­ter­ven­tion Cen­ter. Cadugan replaces Tara Fin­nerty, a long­time em­ployee of the cen­ter.

Cadugan, who has worked with the cen­ter for the past 15 tears, served as the Safe Haven project man­ager, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive payee and as­sis­tant to the di­rec­tor.

Cadugan has a gen­uine love of the pop­u­la­tion and will be an amaz­ing as­set to the cen­ter as the new di­rec­tor, said Michelle Maty­je­vich of CIC in a press re­lease.

Fin­nerty be­gan her ca­reer help­ing peo­ple at the Rap House, a so­cial ser­vice agency that turned into the Com­mu­nity In­ter­ven­tion Cen­ter. She went on to serve as ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for the house, which was open 24 hours a day and served peo­ple with chronic men­tal health, drug and al­co­hol ad­dic­tions or who were home­less, the re­lease said.

Un­der Fin­nerty’s lead­er­ship, the agency changed names and pur­chased its own build­ing in Scran­ton. She se­cured fund­ing for sev­eral new pro­grams in­clud­ing: Safe Haven, three Per­ma­nent Sup­port­ive Hous­ing pro­grams for chron­i­cally home­less in­di­vid­u­als and a well­ness/re­cov­ery room.
