ELDER Alliance

The ELDER Alliance is a change network that supports a strong system of services for the increasing numbers of older adults in Pima County, to enable them to stay healthy, active and have quality of life through the aging process.

Community organizations, individuals, and older adults who are committed to addressing issues for older adults in Pima County are working together to make our community a great place to grow old.


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.
