While much of the success of this network is due to the vision and commitment of members, Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA), the Area Agency on Aging for Philadelphia, deserves strong recognition for its foresight in supporting the group and for devoting staff time to its development.

We are very proud that our programming has catalyzed larger efforts by local organizations to make the city more “age-friendly”  and with your continued participation, we hope to further this trend in upcoming years.
