Advocates for Greene County Senior Citizens

Our goal and mission are to ensure a network of supportive services to assist Greene County’s senior citizens (those age 60 and older) to maintain their dignity and independence within their communities.

We assist adults 60 and older in maintaining and/or improving their social, economic, health, safety and nutritional status. Our mission is to ensure older adults stay independent for as long as possible and have a network of supportive services in the county.
