The Area Agency on Aging Foundation is a private non-profit organization created to encourage local support for programs and services designed to help our seniors to continue to live at home. Through your donation you can help ensure that critical services for our growing senior population will be available now and in the years ahead. Our Foundation operates under the leadership of a Board of Trustees.
You Can Make a Difference
Our vision is that senior adults never fear being abandoned or alone, that the help they need will be there when they need it. Your donation can help make this vision a reality. Giving opportunities include:
The month of May is Older American's Month. "There's No Place Like Home" annual campaign takes place in May and helps provide vital services that make it possible for our older citizens to continue to live at home rather than having to move into a long term care facility prematurely.
