Alliance on Aging, Inc.
Our Mission: To sustain an ever-evolving community network of viable programs which foster long and healthy living
The Alliance on Aging was established in 1970 by a group of concerned local citizens who wanted to help seniors remain safely in own homes for as long as possible. This volunteer driven organization which began as a single program with a handful of volunteers is now a multi-purpose senior service agency with over 200 volunteers. The largest non-profit provider of senior services in Monterey County, the Alliance on Aging serves over 7,000 individuals every year.
Alliance on Aging programs include Medicare Counseling & Education, Peer Counseling, Nursing Home Information & Advocacy, Senior Employment Training, Tax Counseling, and a monthly Luncheon in Salinas. Alliance on Aging staff and volunteers provide direct services, information and education to seniors, adult children, caregivers and “baby boomers” who are approaching and preparing for their senior years. The Alliance on Aging’s administrative and program offices are located at 247 Main St. in Salinas. Program staff also occupy office space at the Monterey Senior Center, 280 Dickman Ave., Monterey. Outreach staff make regular visits to seniors at sites and venues throughout the county. Spirals, a unique consignment and benefit shop located in Pacific Grove, helps to support the programs of the agency.
