Office on Aging
About the Office

The Mayor’s Office on Aging (MOA) was created in 1999 to focus attention on senior issues.  The office was established to advocate for the aging population and develop public policy to improve the lives of the aging citizens of the City of Charleston. 

In 2013, the MOA took on the role of supporting other city departments in providing assistance to elders who may be in abusive situations or in need of critical supports.  Through this work, the MOA consults with the senior and/or their family to assess their needs and direct them to the appropriate service agency.

Anyone in the community needing assistance for themselves, family members, or others, can call the MOA Coordinator, Ms. Jamie Roper, at 577-1306.
