Community Support Services (CSS):

Reaching Out to Strengthen our Communities

EORC’s Community Support Services (CSS) are committed to supporting older adults and adults with a physical disability live independent, active, and meaningful lives in their community. Our goal is to help individuals stay in their own homes as long as they so choose by connecting clients with the care and help they need. Thanks to the efforts of our committed staff and dependable, screened volunteers, the EORC plays a vital role in making our community a vibrant and accessible place.
