Our board of directors consists of one delegate from each of the 19 counties served by CMAAA. Board members are elected by adults 60 years of age and older who live in the service area. Most board members are over the age of 60. In addition to the board, an advisory council composed of older representatives from each county offers input to the agency. CMAAA plans, develops and coordinates a network of services for family caregivers and older persons. The essential goal of our services is to enable older persons to live in their own homes for as long as possible. The agency utilizes federal, state and local tax dollars as well as private donations to implement its programs. Clients voluntarily contribute toward the cost of the services received. In addition, many communities conduct private fundraising efforts to supplement the funds provided by CMAAA thereby expanding services to even more local residents. Volunteers contribute freely of their time and talents allowing us to provide cost effective and compassionate services.
