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!
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
March 16, 2020
Steuben County Council on Aging Senior Center and STAR Transportation Announcement
Beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020, the Steuben County Council on Aging Senior Center will be closed, and all activities canceled. On March 30, 2020 we will evaluate whether to reopen based on information provided by our County Health Department and the CDC. We feel it is imperative to take the steps necessary to limit exposure to and spread of COVID-19 and its potential impact to our older citizens of Steuben County.
While we have continued to take all precautionary steps to ensure our senior participants and our center have been safe, I feel that closing is in the best interest for our senior community. Our office will remain open for calls and we will work closely with our County and Government Officials to ensure safety and wellness for older individuals.
STAR Public Transportation will remain operating during our normal business hours at this time. We have implemented extra precautions and ask all riders to please refrain from using STAR if you are feeling ill or have a fever. Our number one priority is to serve our residents with safe transportation, and we want to ensure all passengers and our drivers remain protected during this time.
Again, this was not an easy decision, but one we feel is in the best interest of our community and the people who attend the COA.
If you have any questions, or need assistance please contact our office at 260-665-8191. We will continue to update on our website at www.steubencoa.org.
