Why We Love Working at CCFCS

Why We Love Working at CCFCS: Watch our TV Ad!

Watch "Why We Love Working at CCFCS", a commercial about CCFCS that aired in September in the Rochester, NY television market. This 30-second ad, produced by Sundance Marketing, features employees Amanda Metzger, James Waters, Michael Flanigan, Sametrius Brigham and Getachew Beshir. We’re so grateful to them for helping us spread the word about our agency, our mission, and our great people. Do you want to love where you work? Come join us! Click here for job listings.

Senior Housing Takes Shape at Marketplace Mall

Construction of the Marketplace Senior Apartments in Henrietta is progressing and the apartments are expected to open in July 2024. This project, developed by Rochester’s Cornerstone Group, was made possible with the help of an ESSHI grant from the NYS Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative. The development will be independent living, but residents in 45 of the 150 units will receive services and support from CCFCS to help them succeed and age in place.

Camp Stella Maris

Camp Stella Maris 

What a wonderful way to end the summer! Residents of our homes for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities spent three days of fun at Camp Stella Maris. Most came for one full day, but some residents stayed overnight in a cabin. Many thanks to Camp Stella Maris and our CCFCS staff for another great outing at Conesus Lake!
