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!

The Steuben County Council on Aging's STAR transportation recently received a new small transit vehicle that seats 8 passengers and is equipped with a power lift, for transporting those passengers who need extra assistance.

This purchase was made possible through the United Way providing a grant  to meet the 20% required local matching funding.

STAR transported over 1,900 passengers and traveled over 174,000 miles last year. This grant makes it possible for everyone in Steuben county to have access to public, low-cost, wheelchair and accessible transportation.

Many thanks for the community support to provide these much needed services.

If you need a ride: call us at 665-9856.
