Experience Corps - Greater New Haven is one of 20 national Experience Corps projects and is a program of the Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut in partnership with United Way of Greater New Haven and Hamden Public Schools.
The project is supported by the Connecticut Commission on Community Service, a partnership of the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Connecticut Department of Higher Education.
The Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut works to provide a continuum of opportunities, care and support services that allow older adults to remain in their homes and communities, avoid unwanted and unnecessary institutionalization, and to age in place with dignity, respect and maximum independence. AASCC, organized and operated under the auspices of the federal Older Americans Act, is a regional planning, funding and direct service non-profit organization. AASCC directly serves almost 37,000 individuals annually through its own departments, formally partners with over 110 home and community-based service providers, coordinates service delivery through the local Interagency Council on Aging, and makes grants of federal and state funds to agencies that serve older adults.
