Services Overview

Information and Assistance

TCOA’s Information and Assistance program is a service that provides elderly individuals with current information on opportunities and services available in the community. This service also assesses the problems and/or capacities of the individuals, and links them to opportunities that are available to them.

Material Aid

Our material aid program is designed to provide a limited supply of incontinent supplies and nutritional supplements. On occasion, when donated there could be fresh fruit and other items. Recreation

Everyone needs a little fun in their lives — no matter what age. That’s why we offer a variety of opportunities for elders to get together for socialization, recreation, and fun.
