History

Founded in 2000 as a 501(c)3 community outreach ministry for the Episcopal Church of the Messiah. The current service model for the SRC evolved from an original vision of a senior daycare center to be located in the church hall. Due to cost and regulatory constraints, the vision was modified to a more attainable short-term goal which was a service model that would address unmet needs for support, information, education, training and referral resources for seniors and their caregivers. In August of 2011, the Senior Resource Center reincorporated as a non-denominational community center serving people of all faith – as well as people of no faith.

As a direct result of offering information and referral resources, the SRC has developed relationships with hundreds of other organizations, in Morris County and other surrounding counties, which are serving the same needs or population. Some of the main relationships include, but are certainly not limited to: Family Service of Morris County, Morris County Department of Human Services-Division on Aging, Disabilities and Veterans, United Way Caregivers Coalition, NORWESCAP, New Bridge Services, Inc., Morristown Memorial Hospital Community Health, Hackettstown Regional Medical Center, St. Clare’s Hospital in Dover and Denville, VNANNJ, Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills, Hope House, Alzheimer’s Association-NJ Regional Office, North Jersey Regional Arthritis Center, Jewish Family Services, Volunteer Management Center, Legal Services of Northwest Jersey, Atlantic Home Care and Hospice, New Jersey Self-Help Clearinghouse, as well as, several other home health care & companion services agencies, independent living/assisted living /skilled nursing facilities, adult day care center, etc.
