Our History

SilverSource, Inc.  (formerly Senior Services of Stamford) was founded in 1908 as the Stamford Home for the Aged. The residential home, known as Denehurst, provided housing for eight people. The home was sold in the early 1970s, and over time the organization evolved into an independent, nonprofit agency to continue the mission and facilitate the delivery of assistance to older people in need – providing financial support, counseling, case management and other services to improve the economic stability and quality of life for older residents of the Stamford/lower Fairfield region.
