Who We Are

This agency provides information to persons over the age of sixty regarding opportunities for independence and makes referrals to other agencies. The agency seeks out and identifies hard to reach older persons in order to inform them of the available options and to assist them in gaining access to needed services.

Particular emphasis is placed in reaching the low income, the vulnerable, the minority and rural component of the senior population. Legal assistance is provided by agency staff for persons over the age of sixty who could not otherwise access this service. Legal problems arising out of entitlement programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, and other areas of law and legislation are evaluated and sometimes referred to an attorney.
