Long-time executive William Deyesso worked in the insurance and real estate industries for several decades before his recent retirement. An active philanthropist, William Deyesso has supported a number of organizations over the years and has volunteered with such groups as the Kennedy Center in Massachusetts.
For more than 50 years, the Kennedy Center has provided education, community, and eldercare services to the local population. The center’s elder care services are divided into two categories: homemaking services and personal care services.
The homemaking services make the individuals wishing to live at home's lives easier. These services are focused on maintaining a healthy, orderly, and safe environment that reduces the risk of tripping and falls. This makes it possible for individuals to continue living in their homes longer. Some of the services provided by the Kennedy Center include defrosting refrigerators, cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, washing dishes, and changing beds.
Meanwhile, personal care services provide more hands-on assistance to individuals. Bathing, skin care, eating, and dressing assistance are all common services offered through the Kennedy Center by trained staff. Each care plan is tailored to customers’ specific needs, thus ensuring they receive the help they need to comfortably and successfully complete daily tasks.

Toddlers and children can receive a quality education there through its early education and childcare services. The Center also caters to the needs of the elderly through various activities and programs.
Aside from donations and internships, the Center thrives through volunteers, who play an important role in helping the organization provide its services.

A wide range of services is available for those who wish to contribute as volunteers.
