MEMBERSHIP BROCHURE

MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION

The New York State Coalition for the Aging (NYSCA) and our members believe that older adults have the right to live as independently as possible, with dignity, in their homes and communities with the appropriate support services. For over thirty years, NYSCA has provided strong advocacy, professional development, leadership skills and education for individuals and organizations serving older adults. We are dedicated to strengthening and expanding community-based services.

There are so many great organizations with dedicated staff who do tremendous work on behalf of older adults. The New York State Coalition for the Aging is the only statewide organization that represents the myriad of community-based service providers. Our members include senior centers, county offices for the aging, social adult day care providers, Alzheimer's associations, Catholic Charities, ARC's, home care agencies and senior providers from towns and municipalities. What all of our members have in common is their dedication to providing quality services to older adults and their belief that seniors can, and most oftentimes should, be cared for in their homes and communities with the appropriate support services.

We need the support and expertise of organizations like yours so that we are able to represent and advocate for the programs and services that you provide. We are working very hard to educate the public, businesses and lawmakers about the importance of investing in community-based services that enable older adults to live as independently as possible, with dignity, in their homes and communities. As you know, this is a difficult task, but it is one that we all must undertake because the future of aging policy is to provide cost-effective services in the community.
