Who We Are
Welcome to PCCOA!
Important message: “We’re all dealing with uncharted territory and a rapidly evolving situation. However, given that “Meals on Wheels” provides a vital lifeline to millions of seniors who depend on us daily, we would expect our programs nationwide to be considered an essential service under any state of emergency and/or emergency declaration”. – Ellie Hollander, President & CEO, Meals on Wheels America
The mission of Parker County Committee on Aging, Inc., is to identify and assess the needs of homebound older adults in Parker County, Texas, and to provide life-sustaining services that allow them to live in the comfort of their homes.
A further mission of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit is the operation of Parker County’s Senior Center that serves persons aged 60 and over with nutritional, educational, recreational, and social programs.
The Senior Center is a place for those 60 and over to socialize, enjoy nutritious meals, and participate in activities such as yoga, pool, bingo, billiards, and more. PCCOA also provides an onsite food bank once a month for seniors who need groceries, as well as providing many other important services.
PCCOA also operates the Parker County Meals on Wheels program that serves more than 120 homebound seniors.
PCCOA has built strong partnerships with families, businesses, regional healthcare organizations in and outside Parker County.
In 2018, we delivered 54,500 lunches to seniors through Parker County Meals on Wheels.
We also served or assisted 1,200 seniors and families onsite, provided 4,800 hours of case management, initiated 4,870 phone calls to homebound Meals on Wheels recipients, and prepared 18,500 onsite meals to visitors of the Center.
Through our senior transportation service, PCCOA provided 3,072 trips to stores, grocery stores, salons, other locations in the Weatherford area for personal and business errands.
The organization has 7 employees and enjoys the generous support of 125 volunteers for the Meals on Wheels program. Additional volunteers assist each week at the Senior Center.
