Beaverton Committee on Aging
The purpose of the Beaverton Committee on Aging is to discover and examine the issues and concerns of the aging population in the City of Beaverton and offer representation, information and education regarding these issues.
Powers & Duties
The Beaverton Committee on Aging, formerly known as the Senior Citizens Advisory Committee, was formed in 1995. The goal of the committee is to provide a forum within city government for seniors to communicate with the city’s senior community and city officials. This has been accomplished through workshops and participating with city officials to address the concerns of seniors.
A Note About COVID-19
The Beaverton Committee on Aging recognizes that in this incredibly challenging time, many older adults are particularly impacted by the social, physical, and emotional aspects of COVID-19. Now more than ever it is important to have social connections, resources and support as we navigate this crisis. If you are looking for ways to volunteer or help in our community, resources can be found at: www.co.washington.or.us/HHS/CommunicableDiseases/COVID-19/donations-and-volunteers.cfm.
If you or someone you know is a senior who is housebound and lonely, anxious or depressed due to our current health crisis, two free resources are available to help.
