The September 24 SNAP-PCOA program will highlight how PCOA works with neighborhood programs like SNAP through the Neighbors Care Alliance. The Sept. 24 SNAP program also ties with National Neighborhood Day, celebrated the third Sunday of September since 2004. This non-sectarian, non-partisan annual celebration acknowledges the importance of simple neighborhood gatherings, which recognize and reinforce one foundation of community.
PCOA Serving the Community
Under the Older Americans Act, the Arizona State Plan on Aging was created as the master plan for coordination and delivery of supportive services for older Americans, from October 1, 2018 through September 30, 2022. PCOA is the designated Arizona Area Agency on Aging for Pima County , charged with communicating about and delivering a multi-tiered approach for the region’s eligible older Americans. PCOA CEO Clark will discuss the importance of neighborhood groups like SNAP…and how PCOA supports residents not only with a pipeline of information resources, but with programs that help residents remain healthy and active.
