Especially for Seniors
The Cranberry Senior Center, located in the Township Municipal Center is open year round. The Center is operated by Nutrition Group and the Butler County Area Agency on Aging.
The Butler County Area Agency on Aging (AAoA) is a community service agency for older adults and has operated in Butler County since 1984. The agency is funded by the Pennsylvania State Lottery, the Federal Older Americans Act, the County of Butler, service fees and private donations by seniors and their families. Governed by the Older Americans Act of 1965 (reauthorized in 2011) and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Butler County Area Agency on Aging is one of 52 AAoAs statewide that provide information and services to help seniors remain independent in the community for as long as possible.
The Area Agency on Aging administers programs and manages services for Butler County residents who are 60 years of age or older. Agency programs and services are designed to serve approximately 28,000 older consumers who call Butler County home.
