Our Story

The Greene County Council on Aging is a not-for-profit county-wide organization which promotes independence and quality of life for Greene County, Ohio, senior citizens and caregivers. GCCOA was established in 1979 and is governed by a Board of Directors. The Council's primary funding source is the Senior Services Levy.

GCCOA provides a broad range of services and programs, including the Partners In Care care management program, the Kinship Program (for grandparents raising grandchildren or other individuals raising someone else's child), educational and support programs for caregivers, and service grants to area senior citizen centers and other service providers.

In addition, the Council provides information to seniors, caregivers, and the general community on a wide range of topics. Information is provided through phone calls, mailings, several newsletters, the Directory of Services, presentations to community groups, and this website.
