Office on Aging
About the Office

 The Mayor's Office on Aging (MOA) was created in 1999 and acts
 as an advocate for the senior population throughout the Charleston area. The Office is staffed by two coordinators who are able to connect seniors to resources and services such as residential care facilities, home health care agencies, community senior centers and other services for the aging population.  Citizens needing assistance in connecting with these services can contact Lynn Godfrey at 577-1306.  Lynn joins Janet Schumacher, who has been the Coordinator for the Mayor’s Office on Aging since 2002.   Ms. Godfrey and Ms. Schumacher will jointly respond to the needs of aging and senior citizens in the Charleston community.
