Social Worker - Jill Sullivan
Jill Sullivan has joined the Health Department Team as the Town of Hingham's newest social worker, providing increased support for residents and improved access to resources.
She offers free drop-in office hours on Tuesdays from 10:00 - 11:00 and 5:00 - 7:00 in the Library's Fearing Room. She can also be reached by calling 781-804-2370 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jill is available to help with accessing emergency services (food, clothing, housing, and crisis support), education and employment, family matters, health improvement (including insurance and mental health concerns), and support groups for adults and teens.
A Licensed Certified Social Worker (LCSW), Sullivan earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Babson College in 2008, and a Master of Social Work from Boston University in 2015.
Prior to being hired in Hingham, Sullivan worked in the business field at Fidelity before deciding to pursue a career in social work and pursuing her master’s degree. She did field work for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health, where she supported individuals within the greater Brockton community.
She then provided individual psychotherapy for people of all ages in a community mental health setting.
Sullivan took time off from her career to raise her children before being hired as a new social worker for the Town of Hingham.
“I am thrilled to join such a strong team here in Hingham, and I hope to further identify community needs while capitalizing on current strengths and providing necessary resources for those in need,” Sullivan said. “In this new role, I am looking forward to supporting, connecting and collaborating with various departments within the Town for the purpose of the continued growth of a healthy and safe community.”
Sullivan lives in Duxbury with her husband, three children and two dogs. She lists some of her passions as childbirth education and being a breastfeeding advocate, and is a lover of donuts and coffee.
