A seed of passion and concern for the elderly was planted in the arms of two sisters, Sandra P. Lacefield and Irene M. Richardson, while taking a class on gerontology at Georgia State University. The class required that the sisters create a community project around any unmet need of the elderly. A meeting in April of 1985 in the basement of St. Mark AME Church saw a class project become a living organization. The meeting was attended by the two sisters, their mother Lillie R. Campbell, and five other seniors; Doris Durham, Eleanor Harper, Clara Huff, Lena Phillips, and Ethel Rice. A short three months later on July 29, QLS was incorporated as a non-profit organization.
