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!

 

GRATEFUL FOR YOU........

My hope as you read this is that each of you had a very blessed Thanksgiving.   While many of us struggle with life issues, we do have much to be grateful for and one of the many items on my gratitude list is YOU.  Over the past few years, it has been such a blessing to me to meet so many of you – the backbone of our community. Some of you I have known for years and others are now new friends. I envy your zest for life and how you care for each other. It is so neat to walk down the hallway and hear the laughter and chatter of your voices as you enjoy our various activities with your friends.

I know this may sound like a “broken record” –  but we are making progress on getting a new senior center for all of us to enjoy. Thanks to our fundraisers, our   various programs and YOU talking to others in our community. I can tell you that we are very near to making an announcement that will make all of you - and us – very happy.  So, get ready, we are going to have a lot of work to do and the board and staff are going to need your support!

As we look ahead to December and all the hustle and bustle it brings, our board hopes that you will check out all the activities that Wendy has planned for the month at the Senior Center. The luncheons are always such a good time to enjoy fellowship with your friends and make new ones while we enjoy a great meal. The calendar is full of activities and things to do to keep you busy all month long – and remember if you don’t want to drive – call STAR to pick you up!

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff, I would like to thank you for being a part of the Steuben County Council on Aging and for all your support all year long.   I believe from the bottom of my heart that our best days are just ahead of us. Keep your ideas, suggestions and comments coming – we love hearing from you!  

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff, we wish you and yours a very blessed Christmas season and remember – “God makes life possible, Faith makes life workable, Hope makes life beautiful, and Love makes life complete. God bless you all.

 

Karen Shelton

Board President
