Every so often, there is an individual who touches our lives in ways we would never expect and, perhaps, never even understand. That person for us at CCCG was Cori.
She provided a safe place for anyone who talked to her. She was that calming voice and unifying individual who truly cared for each person she touched—whether it was clients, staff, or others in the community.
Sandra Mullins, Care and Counseling Center of Georgia CEO
Cori was a beacon of light who lightened everyone’s load and brightened their days. She was a friend to everyone, and made us all feel important. She genuinely cared. Her powerful presence and personal power lifted the spirits of those around her. Cori’s enthusiasm and humor were contagious. Her sense of responsibility and loyalty was remarkable. She loved deeply and was deeply loved.
Carol Pitts, Care and Counseling Center of Georgia Clinical Director
“Hello, this is the Care and Counseling Center of Georgia. My name is Cori and it is my pleasure to help you.” This is the first introduction many of us have had as we called in for the first time. The voice we heard was Cori Sackin and she died unexpectedly this week. Cori was the “presence” of empathy and competence. In her unique style, she first listened to our needs, gently took our information, and guided us through the early, tentative steps into finding the right counselor to fit our needs and our budget. Her responses were so sure and positive that she was often mistaken for one of our counselors. However she assured us that we would work together to find just the right fit.She handled each call with dignity and compassion. From time to time, she would get up from her desk and walk around, as if carrying some of the load.
Cori was a graduate of the University of Georgia. She had years of experience working in the mental health field. Her previous work was with the Jewish Family and Career Services. She leaves a huge whole in the heart of both her family and her work family. She knew each of us at the Center and helped match us with the clients for the best possible care. We will continue her tradition of compassion, listening, and personal connection.
Tom Van Laningham, Care and Counseling Center of Georgia Faith and Community Outreach Coordinator
Cori’s unexpected passing has shocked and saddened so many of us who knew her. The world needs more caring people like her. Sending loving thoughts to all the Sackins — Stevie, Samantha, Marvin and Alex — and their families.
