The mission of Parker County Committee on Aging (PCCOA) is to identify and assess the needs of homebound older adults in Parker County, and to provide life-sustaining services which allow them to live out their lives with dignity in the safety and comfort of their homes.
PCCOA provides an active Senior Center where individuals over the age of 60 may come to socialize, participate in a wide variety of activities and eat a well balanced lunch.
It’s almost that time again to “Move Your Feet So They Can Eat!”
Join us for our 2nd Annual March for Meals Community Event and 5K Walk on March 10, 2018 at 9:00 AM (walker registration begins at 8:30 AM).
This year’s event will be bigger and better! We are adding fun events such as food trucks, live music, a variety of vendors and booths, face painting, and more. Our March for Meals event is a way for us to promote awareness for the Meals on Wheels program in Parker County. It is only with your help that we are able to serve 70,000 meals to seniors in Parker County annually. (The community event is free and open to the public.)
This year we will be having our first Doggies for Parker County Seniors Fashion Show. Registration for the doggie show is free!!! Trophies for SMALL-MEDIUM-LARGE categories will be awarded and all entrants will receive special treats donated by Pets West. The fashion show begins at 11:00 AM (registration available below).
Local community partners and businesses are also invited to participate in the community event and share information and resources available to local seniors.
Registration for those participating in the walk is $25 per person or $100 for a group of five. Booth space for local nonprofits and government agencies are free. Local business and vendor booths are available: 10’x10’ indoor booth space is $75 and 10’x20’ outdoor space is $50. Proceeds support the continuing efforts of Parker County’s Meals on Wheels program, an important service for our community that is dedicated to addressing senior hunger and isolation.
To pay by check (with no extra fees) or for more information, contact Michelle Hernandez at (817) 596-4640. This is a rain or shine event!

What a tumultuous year 2017 had been! To quote T.S. Eliot, “And to make an end is to make a beginning.” We at PCCOA are excited for what 2018 has in store.
The new 60+ center is coming to fruition. On the Vine. By this time next year, we'll be enjoying awesome outdoor activities, weather permitting, on 35 acres of gorgeous land generously donated by Jerry Durant. We will also enjoy an abundance of indoor activities in our new 17,000 square-foot facility.
