The Alliance for Arlington Senior Adult Programs (AASP) was created in 2006 by a group of Arlington citizens interested in improving the quality of life for the senior citizens of Arlington County. At that time there were over 20,000 adults over the age of 65 that called Arlington home and is expected to double by 2030.
AASP was formed to help support and sustain the broad array of programs and services offered to the county’s seniors. It does this by working hand-in-hand with the Arlington County Office of Adult Senior Programs (OASP). As a nonprofit, AASP can apply for grants not available to government agencies, plan fundraisers, and accept tax-exempt contributions to support special programs offered by Arlington’s senior centers. AASP provides a unique opportunity for community members to play a crucial role in designing, planning, and expanding programs and services for Arlington’s 55+ population.
Since its inception, the Alliance has provided over $50,000 in support of Arlington County senior programs.
