CSRA Area Agency on Aging

CSRA Area Agency on Aging We are the gateway to community resources related to aging, disabilities and caregiving. The CSRA Area Agency on Aging was designated in October, 1974, to provide and coordinate programs for older adults in the Central Savannah River Area, located in east central Georgia and headquartered in Augusta, Georgia.

From the beginning, the goal of the Agency has been to assure maximum independence and enhance the quality of life for older persons through home- and community-based services. The CSRA Area Agency on Aging provides a variety of services and support to improve the lives of senior citizens in 14 counties of the CSRA.

It's that time of year again!

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we will be collecting toys once again at our centers and blood drives for the Children's Hospital of Georgia in September.

This is our first year collecting toys for children in the CSRA during the month of September, and it just gets better each year. Help us collect even more toys this year!

Please take a look at this graphic to see what kind of toys the children go through quickly.
