Aging is … img1

Aging is something we have in common, no matter what age we are right now. Being part of a community, feeling safe, maintaining health and mobility – these are expectations that most of us have as we age. The Senior Services Coalition is working together to shape public policy for today, and for a future in which every fifth person you meet will be over 65.



The Senior Services Coalition web site is not for members only! It’s for all senior serving organizations, for policy makers, and for Alameda County stakeholders who care about seniors. It will help you learn about the issues and get involved in advocacy and policy change. The first step to getting involved is to subscribe to our Action Alerts and updates (fill out the subscribe box on the right). If you have questions or suggestions about content, features or other aspects of this site, please feel free to contact us.
