WHO WE ARE
The pikes peak area agency on aging has been providing information, advocacy and services since the mid 1960’s. We receive funding from the Older Americans Act that we utilize in-house and award to local organizations to provide direct services to adults over 60 at no charge to them. Some of the services include health insurance and Medicaid support, caregiver resources, home modifications, personal and home care, transportation, meals, vision services and much more
Innovations in Aging Collaborative (IIAC) was founded in 2009 by Barbara Yalich and BJ Scott who convened other community leaders interested in aging issues and the growing senior population in the Colorado Springs area. IIAC was initially supported by a $50,000 grant from Inasmuch Foundation working in collaboration with UCCS Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak, the CU Foundation, and the CU Aging Center and Gerontology Programs.
