Our Story

Since 1969, Kenosha Area Family and Aging Services, Inc. has been providing quality services for all stage of life.

Using the largest volunteer base in Kenosha, our Senior Services offers seniors many ways to address their needs and allows them to age in place. We deliver healthy, nutritious meals to their homes, offer them options for congregate dining, provide friendly visitors to chat and activities that teach them to use communications technology and address memory health. We also have opportunities for seniors to volunteer and mentor school aged children.

Our Family Services works with the whole family, helping parents to reach new goals and learn effective skills to strengthen the family unit.

Over the years, KAFASI has created excellent working relationships with other caring agencies. We are proud of our partnerships with Kenosha County Human Services, United Way of Kenosha, Habitat for Humanity of Kenosha, Kenosha Unified Schools, and so many more! We are also proud of our vast team of volunteers – people stepping up from our community who share their time and talent with others. Volunteers are truly the muscle of KAFASI.
