Essex Community Services is recognized as a leading community resource identifying needs, coordinating solutions and offering accessible, dynamic programs through multiple access points in the Greater Municipality of Essex. We are a registered charitable organization providing community services to the residents of the Town of Essex and neighbouring municipalities in the County of Essex since 1975. Our agency is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Approximately 100 volunteers participate on committees or assist with direct service each year. Our clients include men, women, children, families, frail elderly, low income individuals of all ages, disabled persons, as well as the unemployed and under-employed. Over the years, our organization has developed several programs and services as a result of the process of assessing the expressed needs of our residents. We are also a point of access to a variety of services which otherwise would not be available locally. Essex Community Services is in compliance with Accessibility Ontario.
