Alliance on Aging

Mission

The Alliance on Aging's mission is to provide services and resources that address the challenges and opportunities of aging. We promote independence, dignity, and well-being for the older adults of Monterey County.

The Big Idea

The Alliance on Aging provides services and resources that address the challenges and opportunities of aging. They are currently working on producing a bilingual, all-in-one Covid-19 service guide, specifically designed to connect seniors to assistance unique to their needs. Monterey County’s seniors (there are about 78,200 older adults ages 60 and up) are most vulnerable to Covid-19, and many are already underserved, low-income and lacking in priority and attention. An interactive services guide, delivered digitally and in print, would help them access critical information while sheltering in place, including services that could help save their lives. Currently, there is no one-stop, interactive Covid-19 services guide for seniors.

We are blessed to have the Alliance on Aging in our community because they do care for us seniors. The staff greets you with respect and kindness. I am grateful for the Farmers Market coupons so that I can buy fresh fruits and vegetables and Sec 8 housing assistance so that I can live in peace after working so many years. I thank the Medicare staff for patiently explaining my medication costs and the difference between various drug plan options. This agency has provided me with all the resources that I need and for me to share with others.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.

The 2020 Campaign begins November 12.
