Cheryl Brown started with Kemptville and District Home Support in 1984 as a Volunteer Coordinator and later moved on to become the organization’s first Executive Director, a position she held for 25 years and we are grateful for her contributions to establishing the organization in the community. In 1981 Mrs. Rita Dinner was the driving force behind the start-up of Kemptville Community Assistance Project (KCAP). In 1983 the name changed to Kemptville and District Community Assistance Program (KDCAP) to reflect the expansion of services into a greater geographical area. In 1988 our incorporated name changed to Kemptville And District Home Support Inc. (KDHSI). In 2009, KDHSI moved to the current location on Sanders Street.
In 2020 our name is changing to Seniors’ Community Services. As history has shown, the need for services to live well within the community has changed and our organization has continued to expand and change to meet the needs of our clients. Our commitment to community service will never change, and our goal is to remain relevant to those who rely on us and the programs and services we provide.
