COAD Programs for Seniors

Since 1972 COAD’s Senior Programs have provided volunteer opportunities for individuals age 55 and older. The programs are designed to help older Ohioans find meaningful community service opportunities as mentors and tutors to disadvantaged children and youth, and to other senior citizens who need supportive service to remain in their own homes. Currently over 800 volunteers perform over 450,000 hours of volunteer service each year.


“Without my assistance, the husband of my client who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease would not be able to leave their home. With my help as a volunteer he can get away to do other chores and get some time for himself.”
Senior Companion, Mariann Sturniolo
