The Council on Aging was organized in 1974 under the Title III of the Older Americans Act. It was designated as a "Focal Point" in providing services to the county's elderly and disadvantaged persons. We operate with Federal, State and Local funds. We are a not-for-profit agency. We rely heavily on donations. Over the years of service provided to the county, we have become a vital link that is often needed in order to meet specific needs of the elderly. Our primary concern is the client.
