Community Council on Aging

Hall County, Gainesville

The Community Council on Aging, or CCOA as it is sometimes called, is located within the Community Services Building at 430 Prior Street S.E. Gainesville. The Council has a volunteer board and no paid staff which is how 97% of every dollar donated to CCOA goes to direct services.  The board meets twelve times a year, approves an annual budget, reviews recommendations to modify services to Meals on Wheels and the Senior Life Center, recruits new volunteers, and  hosts events such as the Annual Volunteer Luncheon, March for Meals and Quality of Life Ceremony.
