Mission, Vision & Values
PCOA’s mission is to promote dignity and respect for aging, and to advocate for independence in the lives of Pima County’s older adults and their families.
We are Pima County’s leading experts on aging well, advocacy, and unbiased information for older people and their families. Founded in 1967, PCOA was among the first aging services organizations in the nation. We are passionate about improving the experience of aging in our community.
Over more than five decades of service to Pima County’s communities, we have developed an unparalleled network of programs and service partners for older adults. This allows us to continually find new ways to serve our community through direct services and partnerships. We strive to be inclusive, innovative, and integrated into the fabric of our community.
Whether you are looking for assistance with Medicare, improving your own health or helping a loved one remain independent and safe at home, our team of professional staff and dedicated volunteers is here to help.
