A Note From Our Executive Director

Let me thank you for taking the time to consider the important work of the Council on Older Adults.

The work of the Council is supported by federal, state and local grants. Our services are at no cost to our clients, but we do have in place a voluntary contribution policy for those who are able to give what they can. Individuals, churches and businesses who believe in our cause also donate to our work.

Yet, the need for services are always greater than our financial resources can meet. Currently, many of our programs must maintain a waiting list. As the aging population continues to grow, so does the need for the type of services we provide. We must continually look for new funding if we are not to only sustain our current work but also expand our services to reach out to those yet to be served. 

We ask for your financial support and assure you we are a worthy steward of all donations we receive. The Council is governed by a concerned and competent board of directors, and our programs are operated by a staff of qualified and caring professionals. Our work is supplemented by a corps of volunteers who believe in our work and who unselfishly give of their time and energy.

Thank you for considering becoming a financial contributor and remember any amount no matter how small will go a long way in helping us continue our work.

If you would like to contact me personally, please feel free to call 910-484-0111 extension 229.
