The Staten Island Inter-Agency Council for Aging (IAC) is
an advocacy group established to identify and address the
needs of Staten Island's elderly population. The Inter-Agency
Council for Aging is comprised of over 65 organizations whose
mission is to facilitate and promote programs and services
for our aging population. The Council advocates for the housing,
health care, social and transportation needs of Staten Island's
elderly. The IAC also interacts closely with local and city
legislators to advocate for services designed to meet these
needs and implement meaningful programs for seniors through
Staten Island. As a support system, the Council advocates
for Staten Island's fair share of City, State and Federal
funds available for senior services.
The Council's work encourages seniors to recognize that
they are productive members of a society which appreciates
and respects the significance of their life experiences.
