A Word from the President of COSS​​
The Council on Senior Services (COSS) is a community council of professionals who work for and volunteer for agencies and businesses that serve senior citizens. The goal of COSS is to improve access to services for seniors in Allen County. This directory has been developed to educate senior citizens and professionals about the numerous services that exist.

Proceeds from the advertising sales in this directory pay for printing of the book and for grants to organizations that submit projects created for the health, education and/or welfare of seniors in our community.  Grants awarded in 2017 are listed on the Grants page; please check it out!

The information in this book has been compiled through the efforts of volunteers. The Council on Senior Services (COSS) makes every attempt to ensure that the information is complete and accurate. COSS does not take responsibility for omissions or errors.  Listings in this book do not imply endorsement.

The Council on Senior Services is proud to be able to provide Grants to local organizations who provide valuable services for seniors living in Northeast Indiana.  

Each organization must show that their request for grant funds follows the Mission Statement of the Council on Senior Services…"To promote the service and benefits of seniors in Northeast Indiana through a network of individuals and organizations providing some type of service to our maturing population."
The focus of each request should mirror the purposes of the Council on Senior Services. These purposes include providing education, information and advocating for seniors. These purposes are to be accomplished using a grassroots approach. Grant recipients are notified and checks are awarded at the November membership meeting.

A maximum total amount will be awarded annually via the COSS grant process. The amount requested and the annual maximum award per organization is not guaranteed. The awarded amount will be determined by the COSS Board of Directors.
In order to continue to qualify for subsequent grant awards, a written report evaluating the project will be required by the COSS Board of Directors by May 1st. There will also be an opportunity to provide an oral report to the general COSS membership at the May meeting.
