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 which 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, woodcutting, 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 has built strong partnerships with families, businesses, regional healthcare organizations in and outside Parker County. In 2016, we delivered 54,500 lunches 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 transit service, PCCOA provided 3,072 trips to doctors, pharmacies, grocery stores and other locations throughout Parker County.
All of our services are free.
PCCOA is not a federal or state agency and receives less than 28% of its annual revenue from government or public sources. The vast majority of its programs are funded through the very generous support of Parker County's residents, businesses, corporations, and foundations.
The organization has 10 employees and enjoys the generous support of 125 volunteers for the Meals on Wheels program. An additional 25 volunteers assist each week at the Senior Center.
Serving Parker County seniors since 1974!
