The CCCoA is committed to the provision of excellence in service to the elderly population of Coles County. We acknowledge that many older adults struggle with health, hunger, loneliness, boredom, and financial restrictions. The programs and services of the CCCoA provide our clientele the resources to cope with the challenges of growing older. Our LifeSpan Center also facilitates social, educational, cultural, recreational, health, wellness, and volunteer opportunities through which seniors contribute to their community. This cooperative relationship provides fulfillment for seniors and much needed services for others in the LifeSpan Center.
While the mission of the CCCoA focuses primarily on senior citizens, our services reach a much broader base. Through our community partnerships and inter agency collaborations, we help build a better community by serving the aging no matter what “age” they are today. We also create opportunities for all generations to connect, interact, and serve others.
The Coles County Council on Aging is governed by a board of 15 volunteers. Board members represent a vast array of interests, expertise, experience and age groups. Monthly board meetings allow the CCCoA to remain a vital asset to Coles county’s citizens.
