Aging Services (PAAA)

Mission

The mission of the Pueblo Area Agency on Aging is to provide a coordinated, comprehensive service delivery system that assists older citizens in maintaining maximum independence, health, and personal well being. 
 
The Pueblo Area Agency on Aging (PAAA) is responsible for administering Older Americans Act (OAA), State and Local funds for the provision of nutrition and supportive services persons sixty (60) years of age and older in Pueblo County.
 
The designated Area Agency on Aging is operated through the Pueblo County Department of Housing and Human Services (HHS), Aging Services Division. The Executive Director of the HHS and the PAAA is Virginia Jimenez.
 
The work of the PAAA is guided by the Pueblo Advisory Council on Aging (PACA), appointed by the Pueblo Board of County Commissioners. (See Link for 2016-2019 Region 7 Area Plan, purpose and membership opportunity and other resources.)
OAA services are provided directly by the PAAA, and through contracts with Senior Resource Development Agency (SRDA), Pueblo Community Health Centers (PCHC), Colorado Legal Services and Center For Disabilities.
 
Programs funded through Older Americans Act and State of Colorado do not charge fees. Service recipients are encouraged to make a donation toward the cost of service. Preference is given to elderly persons in the greatest economic and social needs, particularly those who are low income, minority, frail, homebound, disabled, and isolated.
