History

The Warren/Hamilton Counties Office for the Aging (WHCOFA) is a bi-county governmental agency that was established in 1974, dedicated to maintaining our seniors' independence and dignity.

Warren/Hamilton Counties Office for the Aging provides information and assistance in accessing available services in Warren and Hamilton Counties. Services provided include information and referral, case management, and guiding the elderly to needed services, as well as assisting them with applications for benefits.

Included in our program is New York State's NY Connects system, a No Wrong Door access point for Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) for all individuals, regardless of age, diagnosis, disability, or payment source (public, private or third party).

The programs and services available under the auspices of the Warren/Hamilton Counties Office for the Aging are made possible with funding from Warren and Hamilton Counties, the New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA), and the U.S. Administration on Aging, as well as by voluntary contributions from program participants and donations from the public.
