As directed by Section 306 (a)(6)(B) of the Older Americans Act, The Senior Alliance serves as an advocate for older adults in our service area by monitoring, evaluating, and commenting upon all policies, programs, hearings, levies and community actions which will affect older adults.

Our advocacy work informs elected officials at all levels of government about the desires, needs, health and interests of older adults in our service area.

The Senior Alliance advocates in partnership with the Area Agencies on Aging Association of Michigan, the Silver Key Coalition, the National Area Agencies on Aging Association, the American Society on Aging and Meals-on-Wheels America.

Nutrition, health, and housing stability should be easier to obtain for older adults and adults with disabilities. With your help on these key objectives, we can carry the conversation into action items that make a real difference. Community impact goes further when we work together to make a change.
