Welcome to Champions of AgingTM.

Who We Are

The mission of the Champions of Aging ("COA") is to build a future workforce that has an understanding and appreciation of the complexities and individuality of the aging process. Founded in 2018, COA is a pending 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the Internal Revenue Service, organized in the state of Nebraska. COA is proud to make this site (the "Site") available in connection with its Champions of Aging service year program. The Champions of Aging service year program is intended to provide service year opportunities for college students and recent graduates, who will complete paid service at various sites who have a mission and purpose regarding the provision of services, care, and programming for seniors.

COA has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service to pursue public charity status. COA is not legally affiliated with any Home Instead Senior Care® branded foundations, Home Instead, Inc., or any of the independently owned and operated Home Instead Senior Care franchised or master franchised businesses.
