Southern Frontenac Community Services Corporation (SFCSC) is a registered charity that acts as a community hub for health and social services in rural South Frontenac in eastern Ontario, established in 1989.
Its mandate is to provide programs and services that will improve and maintain the quality of life within our region. It does this primarily by offering a broad slate of programs for seniors including adult day services for frail elderly, hot meals on wheels, Diners Club congregate dining programs, seniors' social and recreational programs, transportation services, visiting hospice and respite, support groups, and other health and social services particularly for seniors in a rural setting including isolated seniors
SFCSC is the service delivery agent for homelessness prevention and low-income supports for all of Frontenac County, assisting people with rental and utility arrears, finding appropriate housing, and connecting vulnerable individuals and families to programs and community resources.
In addition, SFCSC operates the Sydenham Food Bank which serves about 50 families each month across rural Kingston and South Frontenac Township. Families are provided with one week's worth of non-perishable food along with fresh vegetables, milk, and meat. Hampers are supplemented with choices based on the families' specific needs and requests.
SFCSC is governed by a volunteer board of directors drawn from across the rural community who bring a diverse set of skills and aptitudes to the organization. We have a staff of 18 and a dozen brokered workers. SFCSC relies on 180 active volunteers who provide leadership, services and supports across all areas of the organization.
What People Are Saying
"I am very grateful for the transportation service you provide. Without that I would not have been able to stay in my home last winter. The service is a God-send."
— Lauraine Bell
"The Adult Day team do what they do so people like our Dad can have the loving care of 'family' during the day. We wouldn't have been able to have Dad live with us as long as he did without this valuable community service. What an amazing opportunity it was for us to have our father in your care. "
