Senior Services

                                                                                               

The Greene County Council of Aging was established in January of 1985, and was charged with planning and coordinating existing services for older adults in GreeneCounty.  This group was instrumental in acquiring the current site and building for a Senior Center.  Greene County Senior Services is a branch of Greene County Government.  We serve Greene County Residents who are at least age 60 or older. Please contact the Senior Center for the Eligibility Requirements.
