Our mission

PRCS was initially formed to act as an umbrella agency for the Service providing integration and support in the community which was, at this time, looking for a sponsor.

The Prescott and Russell Community Services involved in the collectivity for the past 30 years!

1983

Beginning in 1983, people were recruited to serve on a consultation committee to study the viability of the organization. During this step, it was quickly realized that one could not develop an organization with just a single service. The committee then mulled over this situation and identified, amongst others, that there was no group offering services favoring the support of seniors at home and coordinating the collection of services offered to the older population.

A request along these lines was made to the Ministry of Community and Social Services to create such a service. The Ministry gave its approval to this concept.

1983

1984

In 1984, steps were undertaken to recruit members to sit on the first Board of Directors of PRCS and also to hire a general manager. Furthermore, a new service meant for intellectually-challenged people was added to the organization.

1985-1986

In 1985-86, PRCS continued on its way with the development of its constitution and its presentation of letters patent in October 1986.

1985-1986

In april 1991

In April 1991, we attained the status of a charitable organization in order to have an additional source of funding.

1993

In 1993, the Prescott and Russell Community Services were transferred to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care of Ontario. Currently we are sponsored by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network.

1993

2001

In January 2001, the program for the intellectually-challenged was dropped by the Ministry. In contrast, the services for seniors continued to shape up.

In closing, it is to be noted that we constantly strive to achieve our motto which is

“For a Self-Sufficient Community”.
