Description of AgencyPhiladelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) is a private, non-profit organization serving as Philadelphia county’s Area Agency on Aging since 1973. One of the region’s largest non-profit organizations, PCA's mission is to improve the quality of life for older Philadelphians or people with disabilities and to assist them in achieving their maximum level of health, independence and productivity. Special consideration is given to those with the greatest social, economic, and health needs.

PCA carries out this mission through five major functions: planning; advocacy; program development; service coordination and delivery; and the accountable administration of public and private funds to contract with more than 100 community organizations to deliver social and health care services to more than 100,000 consumers each year.

These services include:
- Advocacy

- Employment Assistance
- Health Promotion
- Home Repair
- Information and Referral
- Legal Assistance
- Home-delivered Meals
- Protective Services
- Senior Community Centers
- Transportation

Founded on the principle that older persons have the right to plan and manage their own lives, PCA seeks ongoing input from consumers. We acknowledge the dignity of all older people and respect their racial, religious, sexual and cultural differences.
