About PCA

Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) is a private, non-profit organization serving as Philadelphia county’s Area Agency on Aging since 1973. One of the region’s largest non-profit organizations, PCA's mission is to improve the quality of life for older Philadelphians or people with disabilities and to assist them in achieving their maximum levels of health, independence and productivity. Special consideration is given to those with the greatest social, economic, and health needs. 

PCA carries out this mission through five major functions: planning; advocacy; program development; service coordination and delivery; and the  accountable administration of public and private funds to contract with approximately 200 community organizations to deliver programs, services and resources that touch the lives of more than 100,000 older Philadelphians and those who care for them each year.

These services include:

Advocacy
Care at Home Services
Employment Assistance
Health Promotion
Home Repair
Information and Referral
Legal Assistance
Home-delivered Meals
Protective Services
Senior Community Centers
Transportation 


Founded on the principle that older persons have the right to plan and manage their own lives, PCA seeks ongoing input from consumers. We acknowledge the dignity of all older people and respect their racial, religious, sexual and cultural differences.
