Working Together To Meet The Needs Of Our Neighbors
At the Area Agency on Aging-Five County, we know that we would not be able to do what we do without the support of so many. Our volunteers and community partners are on top of the list of those we can't survive without!
There are many supports and services available in our community based on specific individualized needs. We are happy to partner with so many agencies who specialize in areas that are complimentary to our own.
We are grateful to the partners shown above, as well as countless others locally and at the State and Federal levels that work with us to bring a variety of services to those who need them most. We appreciate the efforts of all of our partners and enjoy working along side each of them!
In addition to our priceless partners, we are grateful for the contributions of our valued volunteers. Our volunteers support us in a variety of ways. Some volunteers spend their time in schools helping children learn to read, while others spend time being a pal to their peers. Still others, teach low impact exercise classes and share tips on living well. Yet another group helps Medicare Beneficiaries and Veterans navigate the world of benefits access. Let's not forget those who volunteer to be a part of boards and committees, and those who help support the function of our office. These individuals are a valuable part of our team and we are grateful for all they do! If you'd like to learn more about how you can become part of our team, visit our website or call us at 435-673-3548!
Most recently, we are proud to have brought together a group of our partners and volunteers for a 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance project.
We are grateful to our partners National Council on Aging, United States Senator Mike Lee, UServeUtah, and SUU Community Engagement Center for their part in this video and for all they do to advance volunteerism in our community. We also appreciate each of our volunteers who participated for giving their time to this video project and for their ongoing service to our community.
Helen Keller once said, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." Here at the Area Agency on Aging-Five County, we believe that to be true! Whether you choose to volunteer or partner with us, attend an event or pass along resources, your support is important to our work at the AAA. There are many ways you can contribute to our community, and every little bit that you commit goes a long way in helping us fulfill our mission. If you are reading this, we would like to thank you for being involved!
