SCOSA offers educational opportunities for older adults that encourage vitality through physical, social, mental and spirutual engagement.

SCOSA programs are partially funded under Title III of the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended, through a grant by the Atlantic County Division of Intergenerational Services. Thus, we are required to collect basic demographic information from participants and appreciate their onging  cooperation.  The NJ Division of Aging Services also compells us to inform participants about their Privacy and Non-Discrimination policies, available for review by Clicking Here.
