ELDER Alliance is committed to older people staying healthy longer, remaining active and involved, and maintaining maximum independence.
The ELDER Alliance is a broad collaboration of non-profit organizations, businesses, government agencies, community partners, and age 50+ residents. Since 2010 our dedicated ELDER Alliance action teams have worked to establish a strong support system for the rapidly growing aging population. The Alliance now has a membership of more than 130 individuals with affiliations in more than 70 organizations and active community volunteers. The Alliance is staffed by United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona and Pima Council on Aging.
Older adults thrive, enjoy quality of life and play an active role in shaping livable communities for all ages in Pima County.
Guided by the voices of elders, we advocate and design solutions that improve the quality of life for all.
Statement on Equity
The membership of the Elder Alliance strives to create an inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible culture where all new perspectives are valued and celebrated. We will work to identify and then eliminate the disparities and barriers to participation in our coalitions and teams through sharing of power and deep collaboration. We commit to intentionally engage with our community in an effort to learn and to transform the landscape of older adult services for the betterment of ourselves, our organizations and our futures.
