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!



It seems that almost every day when I am out and about in our community, someone stops to ask me “how are things going with The Senior Center relocation project”. My answer continues to be that we are still looking for a place that fits our needs, a lot that we can build on and we are still accepting donations and planning fundraising activities. Although I keep  telling myself that “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and that “all things come        together for those that wait”….I find it hard to be patient many days. I truly believe that “our place” will become a reality as I look around and see all of the other not for profit entities that have accomplished their goals. Our time will come!!!


Speaking of fundraisers – please mark Friday evening, October 19th on your calendar for the Senior Center’s Annual Event. This year’s theme will be “An Evening with the Steuben STARS”.  Once again we will return to the beautiful Lake James Room at Potawatomi Inn for a showcase of local   musical talent that will provide an entertaining evening and raise funds  solely dedicated to our relocation efforts. You will not want to miss it!!


Most likely by now those of you who visit the Senior Center or attend the Senior Center activities on a regular basis know that our Activities Director Pam McLaughlin has resigned to pursue other interests. After having only been with us less than a year, Pam has endeared herself to many of  you and had made many improvements to our senior offerings and comradery.  While we will all miss Pam’s smiling face, our senior activities will continue as a new Activities Director is sought. If you know of someone who loves mixing and mingling with the delightful seniors in our community, send them over to the Council on Aging offices for more information.  


As a reminder, although our board does not meet in the month of June, you are always welcome to attend our board meetings, which are held on the last Thursday of the month (except June and December). We welcome your thoughts, comments and suggestions anytime you want to offer them.  Have a great June!!!
