Three organizations, Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio (COA), Hamilton County General Health District (HCGHD), and the Health Alliance, are collaborating to implement the Active for Life grant activities in Southwestern Ohio.

“The collaborative efforts of COA, HCGHD, and Health Alliance provide a unique combination of experience with educational programs, ability to build sustainable community partnerships and credibility related to addressing the needs of the 50+ population,” says Robert Logan, CEO of the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio.

COA is the designated Area Agency on Aging serving five counties. COA was incorporated as a private non-profit organization in 1971 and is now, with an annual budget of $62 million, the leading organization in the area providing services to older adults. The mission of COA is to enhance the lives of adults by assisting them to remain independent at home through a range of quality services.

The mission of the HCGHD is to work with the community to protect the public health and environment by providing education, inspections, health care coordination, and data analysis. HCGHD provides public health services to nearly a half-million residents in Hamilton County, Ohio.

The Health Alliance is the largest integrated health care system in southwest Ohio with a mission to provide the very best in prevention, treatment, education and research to benefit the community.

“The partnership between COA, the HCGHD and the Health Alliance represents a powerful combination of effective infrastructure, experience and expertise. COA’s existing infrastructure combined with the health promotion experience and expertise of the HCGHD and the Health Alliance create the optimal opportunity for implementing, evaluating, and sustaining AFL,” notes Mr. Logan.
