Our Mission

The role of the Council on Aging is to provide quality elder services,  and programs that enhance elders mental, physical, and emotional well-being.  To aid in the support of frail individuals to remain independent in their  homes;  assuring all elders of equality, dignity, and respect.

The Council on Aging has been in existence since 1972, previously  located in a small storefront building in the center of town. After many  years of increased programs and growth the COA/Senior Center moved to  a new facility in 1989 with the Mansfield Library. The Mansfield COA/Library  facility are separate departments who work cooperatively to provide the  community with services and programs. The enhanced multi-purpose room  provides a meeting place for community non-profit organizations during  evening hours.The COA is a multi-facetted facility offering many services  & programs to elders 60 and over. Library services are across the  hall for all seniors to enjoy.

The board of selectmen shall appoint to a Council on Aging seven members to three-year overlapping terms in accordance with the General Laws.
