Focal Points

The 1978 amendments to the Older American Act (OAA) charged Area Agencies with designating “a focal point for comprehensive service delivery in each community to encourage the maximum co-location and coordination of services for older individuals.”

The concept of community focal points for service delivery was developed to simplify access to the service delivery system for older people. Designation of community focal points decreases fragmentation and duplication of services at the local level. Focal points create an identifiable place for older people to come together, receive services and develop skills. The following centers have been designated as Focal Points in their communities:
