Our History

In 1972, the local governments of Planning District 9 (Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock) formed the Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board. At this same time, the Planning District Commission recommended that the newly formed Community Services Board also provide services under Title III of the Older Americans Act. These events formed and created a combined area agency on aging and community services board – a unique organization at its inception and it continues to be the only such combined agency in Virginia. Its combined statutory mission rests with its Area Plan for Aging Services (Federal Older Americans Act), and Virginia Code 37.1 through its Performance Contract with the Virginia State Department of Behavioral Health and Disability Services.

In 2011, we updated our name to “doing business as” Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services (RRCS).
