What We Do

AgeOptions is the Area Agency on Aging for Suburban Cook County (the "inner-ring" suburbs of Chicago). As the Area Agency, we administrate a number of important services that help protect older adults (defined as anyone over 60+) and allow them to age with dignity. We also provide supports for people with disabilities and unpaid caregivers. A majority of our funding is from government sources, including grants under the Older Americans Act; we are also a grant maker, partnering with over 70 local agencies to fund the aging services network for suburban Cook County.

AgeOptions has a number of different service lines; the one using Catchafire is Thrive with Pride, our LGBT+ programming and outreach. Our organization has a wonderful, but overworked, marketing team, so we're here to leverage your volunteer skills to help improve our services and messaging!
