For more than 40 years, the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging has been helping seniors and their families. COAAA provides information, resources and education to the community, as well as provides help at home for seniors to continue independent living in their own homes.

In-home senior services include the PASSPORT and Senior Options Programs.

COAAA is operated under the City of Columbus, Recreation and Parks Department, Tony Collins, Director, and Michael B. Coleman, Mayor.

During Older Americans Month each year, COAAA salutes the special accomplishments of older adults with inductions to our Hall of Fame. For more information about these awards and nominations visit the Hall of Fame Information and Awards pages.
