It was through the actions of volunteers that Lambton Elderly Outreach was first started. It is through the unselfish dedication of its volunteers, along with the support of its Board Members and Staff that Lambton Elderly Outreach has evolved, over the past forty-three years, to become a leader in Community Services for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities. Here is how we have grown over the years:
Lambton Elderly Outreach found its roots in 1970 with a Meals on Wheels service operated through the kitchens of volunteers
Lambton Elderly Outreach was a feeder project entitled "Total Needs of the Elderly in Lambton County"
Lambton Elderly Outreach was incorporated on June 5, 1980
Lambton Elderly Outreach started a Helping Hands for the Handicapped (3H*) Program
Satellite offices were established in Corunna, Forest and Grand Bend
The main office was relocated from Petrolia to the current location in Wyoming at Reeces Corners
Lambton Elderly Outreach integrated staff and services with Senior VIP. The office space of Senior VIP in Sarnia remained open to clients and staff as a satellite office
The satellite office in Sarnia was closed
Today Lambton Elderly Outreach employs over sixty staff members that include Office Administrative Staff, Van Drivers, Home Support Workers / Personal Support Workers, SAFE Fitness Instructors and Home Maintenance Workers. LEO also has over 150 volunteers who dedicate their time to deliver service in many of our programs and to sit on our Board of Directors.
