ELDER Alliance

ELDER Alliance is committed to older people staying healthy longer, remaining active and involved, and maintaining maximum independence.

The ELDER Alliance is a broad collaboration of non-profit organizations, businesses, government agencies, community partners and age 50+ residents. Since 2010 our dedicated ELDER Alliance action teams have worked to establish a strong support system for the rapidly growing aging population. The Alliance now has a membership of more than 130 individuals with affiliations in more than 70 organizations and active community volunteers and is staffed by United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona and Pima Council on Aging.


Older adults thrive, enjoy quality of life and play an active role in shaping livable communities for all ages in Pima County.


Guided by the voices of elders, we advocate and design solutions that improve the quality of life for all.
