Area 3 Senior Services Agency
The Area 3 Senior Services Agency (A3SSA) is one of six Area Agencies on Aging across Idaho funded by the Idaho Commission on Aging (ICOA).
The A3SSA serves Ada, Adams, Boise, Canyon, Elmore, Gem, Owyhee, Payette, Valley, and Washington counties. The A3SSA is administered through a joint-powers agreement between 7 of its 10 counties. This agency actualizes the mission of the Older Americans Act in providing information, referrals, and services to improve the lives of older Idahoans.
The A3SSA Advisory Council helps in the administration and planning of the Older Americans Act programs by gathering information and ideas that help to coordinate the delivery of services and by responding effectively to the strengths and needs of older adults throughout the southwest Idaho region.
The Advisory Council is comprised of individuals and representatives of community organizations who help to enhance the leadership role of the Area Agency on Aging in developing community-based systems of services. Membership categories include: persons over the age of sixty years who are consumers or potential consumers of service; a community action agency representative; a Senior Volunteer Programs participant; resource persons from non-grantee agencies and members of the general public.
