Age Strong Commission

Update: The City of Boston's Age Strong Commission invites all interested agencies to submit proposals for the Comprehensive Hoarding Program. Check out the Comprehensive Hoarding Program page for more details.

For us, strength comes in many forms. Strength of community. Of cultures. Of experiences. Strength to embrace new chapters and opportunities. We believe that Bostonians who are 55+ make our City strong and vibrant. Our mission is to enhance your life with meaningful programs, resources, and connections so we can live and age strong in Boston together.

We have many designations. As a Commission, Council on Aging, and Area Agency on Aging, we are not new to aging. We have been doing this for more than 50 years. Age with us.

In addition to the values of our City Brand, we also emphasize a few other qualities in our work.

  1. Respect: We believe it is an honor to help older Bostonians, and we treat people with dignity.
  2. Inclusivity​​​​​​​: Diversity in our city makes Boston better, and we pay special attention to how we can best meet the needs of all older residents.
  3. Patience: We take the time to listen with compassion and meet people where they are.
  4. Integrity: Credibility and trust is core to who we are and how we serve older Bostonians.
  5. Joy: Enjoying all that the City of Boston has to offer is important to us, so we promote fun at our events, in our conversations with residents, and on our teams.
