COAD Programs for Seniors
Since 1972 COAD’s Senior Programs have provided volunteer opportunities for individuals age 55 and older. The programs are designed to help older Ohioans find meaningful community service opportunities as mentors and tutors to disadvantaged children and youth, and to other senior citizens who need supportive service to remain in their own homes. Currently over 800 volunteers perform over 450,000 hours of volunteer service each year.
COAD’s Senior Companion Program provides volunteer opportunities to men and women age 55 and older. Senior Companion Volunteers are healthy older adults who help other adults live independently.
The COAD Foster Grandparent Program has been providing meaningful volunteer services opportunities to men and women age 55 years and older working with both children and youth who are in need.
