We are a charitable organization that has an IRS as a 501 (C) 3 designation. We are governed by an all volunteer seven person Board of Directors.
We are working closely with the Monroe County Area Agency on Aging to:
- Investigate and identify the long range needs of older adults in the Pocono area.
- Develop outreach activities which will inform the Pocono area older adults of available services, benefits and opportunities.
- Publish and fund the distribution of the "Senior Express Times" a monthly newsletter with emphasis on Aging issues.
