Welcome to the Steuben County Council on Aging  Community Center!!!

 

The Steuben County Council on Aging is staffed with dedicated people who are committed to assisting older

adults and persons with disabilities so that they are able to remain independent in the home of their choice

with dignity, thus preventing premature institutionalization.

The SCCOA is an independent, not-for-profit agency funded by: Title IIB Older Americans Act, Medicaid,  

Trustees/County Commissioners, City of Angola, Churches and Civic Groups,

Steuben County United Way, Foundations & Grants, Private Donations and Fundraising.

 

The SCCOA acknowledges and supports the rights of all individuals and is actively involved in

serving older adults & persons with disabilities, as well as low-income families without any discrimination.

We believe all   persons have the right to know what is available to help them care for  themselves.  

The Council on Aging staff can help provide this information to you.  

We provide a wide range of information from all over Steuben County and the region.

If we can be of help, let us know — we are here to serve you!

 

 

           National Random Acts of Kindness Day is February 17th,

it is celebrated to encourage acts of kindness.

 

What is a random act of kindness? It is a selfless act performed by a kind  person to either help or cheer up a random stranger, for no other reason than to make people happier and be helpful. It can be kind words or kind deeds.  Acts can be done in person or anomalously. The positivity of a  random act of kindness benefits both the giver and the surprised receiver.    

 

Here are some suggestions and ideas to inspire you. ….

 

Give a warm drink or food item to someone who has to work outside, pay for the next person in line at a drive-thru, pay a compliment, make a donation to a local agency, handout a dozen flowers to 12 different people, visit a sick friend, open the door for someone to go ahead of you, write a letter, share a compliment, forgive someone, leave a dollar and a note (this one’s on me) on a vending machine, volunteer for a day or a couple of hours, say hello and good morning/afternoon to a stranger. This is a small list of possibilities, you can think of many more.

“Treat everyone with politeness and kindness, not because they are nice, but because you are.”  Roy T. Bennett
