The Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging (SVCOA) is a private non profit community based organization whose goal is to support elders 60 years of age and older in maintaining maximum independence. The Council seeks to be responsive to both individual elders who need assistance to remain independent and to the communities in our region who need our technical assistance and support to identify elder needs and create locally based solutions.

A single phone call to the Council's Senior HelpLine can give elders, caregivers and others information about services and resources in our area or, if needed, linkage with one of our Case Managers or other staff to provide more individualized assistance.
