Message from the Chief Executive Officer

Welcome to the Community Support Centre of Essex County

Since 1983 the Community Support Centre has had a rich history of providing quality health and community support services.

Our clients are the reason we do what we do. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Our donors, without them, we could not do what we do. Our staff and volunteers allow us to provide the community with all of our services from one location.

We know that the road to success and happiness is not always paved with roses and we will face bumps and challenges along the way. We must not dwell on the challenges. Now is a time for us to choose happiness and face the renewal of life, this new season, with positivity and an open heart. Together we will get through this and come out stronger.

Community support services allow people to safely meet their unique needs, be more independent and resilient, and live the way they want to live, for longer.  That is why our team works so hard to ensure the sustainability of our services. Appropriate services can delay or prevent admissions into long-term care, reduce emergency department visits and shorten hospital stays.

In every community, there is work to be done. In every person, there is the power to do and the power to heal. Our community has proven resiliency beyond measure. We must continue to work together and provide the services to those in need. Our community must show its greatness by supporting one another through difficult times.

Please explore our website further and if you do require more information, contact us at 519-728-1435.

We sincerely thank each of you for your support and commitment to our mission. And in the hope-filled words of those we serve, we know this is just the beginning.
