The Whatcom Council on Aging (WCOA) has been serving seniors in our community since 1964. We are an independent non-profit organization supported by donations from local businesses and community members, limited federal funding and grants. Founding board members were part of the nation-wide effort to pass the Older Americans Act in 1965.
We operate five programs:
We are committed to finding ways to continue to serve seniors, especially those who cannot afford to pay for our services. Our programs are designed to be generally financially self-supporting (83% of our staff members are unpaid volunteers) with the exception of our Senior Nutrition Program which serves some of the lowest income people in Whatcom County. The majority of seniors we serve are in the lowest income group (according to U.S. HUD).
