Help Me, Help You, Help “Help Me Susan”!


Hello.  I am Kevin Poe from Family Care Solutions.  This is the first of what I hope to be regular, informative Blogs!

Most of you probably remember the scene from Jerry McGuire where Tom Cruise says “Help me help you!” With your help, we are hoping to make Help Me Susan (HMS) even more useful as a tool in sharing resources, information, and services to achieve greater success.

 I hope to post a blog each month sharing success stories from our members as well as occasional subjects that we think are of interest to the group. If you have found a solution or been able help a client or your business by posting on HMS or connecting with someone at a Senior Resource Team (SRT) meeting, please share those with me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

To keep up with your meetings and events, we plan to go “live” with Google Calendar so that meeting coordinators can better communicate changes in dates, topics, speakers and cancellations, as well as updating the List of Professional Community Meetings in real time.

The Email Listserve will be changing formats. In order to be easier to navigate and find solutions or search for prior responses, we will be using a Community Forum like you may have seen on other websites. You post your question or request and members responses post below. Everything will be there for all to see so remember to contact the poster direct if you don’t want to be seen by all! It may take a bit to get used to, but I think this will be an efficient way to find solutions both current and from past postings.

We think these changes create a great opportunity for you to showcase yourself and your business. You want to be sure to have your business listed in the Directory! 

Susan Signorino created and operates HMS to benefit you, the professional member or students and others entering the field of caring for others. Please don’t hesitate to let Susan, Sandi Guyton, or myself of any suggestions you may have. Of course it’s not free to make these improvements. We expect to get more traffic on the HMS website creating more opportunities for our Sponsors (advertisers). So we can also use your help to defray some of the cost by advertising and listing on Help Me Susan.

Happy Holidays and here's hoping I-- “Had you at Hello”!

About Help Me Susan!

HelpMeSusan.org has been a work in progress for quite some time. Founder, Susan Signorino, LMSW, CMC, started a professional networking email listserv in 1994 on a small scale as a way to communicate with other Hospice and Home Care social workers in the St. Louis area. Susan was working in rural Jefferson County, Missouri and felt very isolated and wanted to be able to extend her reach and connect with other professional social workers. In 2008, Susan started working in St. Louis and spreading the word, so her email listserv eventually skyrocketed into 300-400 emails per day!
