WIAAA History

The Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging was founded in 1973 under an amendment to the Older Americans Act of 1965. The Act is a Federal law created to help older Americans live in their homes with safety and dignity as long as possible with appropriate services and support. There are approximately 629 area agencies across the nation, 13 in the State of Illinois. We are part of a vast, national network of services and programs to protect the rights and support the needs of older Americans.
