ABOUT PSA 2 AREA AGENCY ON AGING
Established in 1980, Planning and Service Area 2 Area Agency on Aging (PSA 2 AAA) is a Joint Powers Agency providing aging and adult services in Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou and Trinity Counties. Funded through the Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965, and administered by the Administration on Community Living and the California Department of Aging, the PSA 2 AAA's primary goal is to advocate for and offer services to the older adult and disabled population in the five county region.
The Older Americans Act (OAA) and the Older Californians Act (OCA) states that the Area Agency shall be the leader relative to all aging issues. This involves a wide range of functions related to advocacy, planning, coordination, inter-agency linkages, information sharing, brokering, monitoring and evaluation - all which are designed to lead to the development or enhancement of comprehensive and coordinated community-based systems of care.
