Mission Statement

The Posey County Council on Aging is a n0n-profit agency created for the
purpose of improving the life of older Americans. The primary objective
of the Agency is threefold:

1) To enable older adults to live in their homes as long as possible
with appropriate supportive services;

2) To remove individuals and social barriers to economic and personal
independence for older persons, including the provision of
opportunities for volunteer activities;

3) To act as an advocate of older persons in developing community resources for
the aging throughout the Posey County area, while providing a
comprehensive service network.

Each PCCA Center offers a variety of activities. Please check the
calendar for additional information.
