Your interest and support ensured Monterey County Gives! had a record breaking year. Together, we empower our local nonprofit community
to be its best. Thank you!
-The Monterey County Gives! team.
The Alliance on Aging's Mission is to provide services & resources to older adults in Monterey County to address the challenges and opportunities of aging. We promote independence, dignity & well being.
For Monterey County Seniors (60+) access to critically needed services (Medicare, Legal Services etc) can be challenging Many of the organizations serving their needs are located miles apart resulting in Seniors having to make multiple trips. The HUB is a one stop shop for Seniors to get assistance. We are partnered with six local non-profits and we are co-located under one roof at the HUB.
The HUB serves as a vibrant venue for Senior Wellness and enrichment activities such as : Tech Training, Farmers Market, Braille Classes, Ballroom Dancing, Aging at the Movies, Art Classes, Brain Games, Memory Classes, Chair Yoga and much more.
To the broader public, the Alliance on Aging is known as "that place" where you get your taxes done for free when you reach a certain age. But, as I learned for myself, it is so much more than that. It is a caring community that helps seniors build, not only new skills, but new friendships. As we age, we tend to lose both of those things. With classes such as healthy cooking, safe driving, technology training, yoga, ballroom dancing, art, and so many more, The Alliance on Aging HUB brings people together throughout the year who share similar interests. Sometimes, and for many seniors, like me, that feels way more important than getting your taxes done once a year.
