About COA - Council on Aging

History:

The Council on Aging was launched in 1985 as a vital outgrowth from a mayoral task force on senior issues. The task force saw the need for an engaged, impartial and accountable group to continually study gaps in services for seniors and to be an advocate on behalf of senior issues.  COA is now an independent, board-directed 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

 
Mission:
COA champions informed and positive aging
and serves as the area’s catalyst for collaborative solutions.
