About Council on Aging

About

Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio (COA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life for older adults, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers. We promote choice, independence, dignity and well-being through a range of services that help people remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Founded in 1971, COA is part of the national aging services network and is a state-designated Area Agency on Aging, serving individuals across a 21-county region. One call to COA links people to the wide variety of agencies, information and programs that serve older adults, people with disabilities and their caregivers.

As an Area Aging on Agency, we are responsible for planning, coordinating and administrating local, state and federally-funded programs and services for older adults, people with disabilities and caregivers in our planning and service area: Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties.
