The Elder Foundation (formerly known as the Jefferson County Council on Aging (JCCOA)), recently celebrated our 35th anniversary serving seniors.  The Jefferson County Meals on Wheels program, our oldest program, actually began almost 40 years ago! Additionally, through a contract with the Alabama Department of Senior Services, The Elder Foundation provides the Jefferson County Long Term Care Ombudsman program which advocates for residents of assisted living facilities as well as long term care facilities.  The Elder Foundation is also the Alabama Chapter of the Twilight Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to qualified seniors.  

As we look forward to our next 35 years and beyond, we are excited to be known as the 
Elder Foundation - a name that captures the essence of who we are and who we serve.  Watch for more exciting news as we enter this new phase serving seniors by Nurturing Quality Life.

The Elder Foundation depends on the generous support of members of the community to allow us to continue to serve seniors in Jefferson County and beyond.  If you would like to join our cause and support us, you may click on the link below to be transported to our online giving platform powered by the Razoo Foundation.  While we welcome large gifts, no amount is too small, and every dollar helps us nurture quality life for seniors.  

Elder Foundation enjoys the generous support of a number of charitable foundations and organizations, corporations, churches, and generous individuals who enable us to meet the needs of the seniors.  Without this committment from our partners, we would be unable to fulfil our mission. Should you wish to join us as a partner either to support existing programming or expanding our ability to meet the needs of seniors in the community, please visit our "Partners" page on this website or click the link below.
