Commission on Aging
Our mission is to provide services to seniors, 60 years and older, who reside in the city of Ishpeming, and the townships of Ishpeming, Ely, Tilden, Humboldt, Champion, Michigamme and Republic.
The goal of our services and programs is to promote the independence, safety, dignity, and well-being of older adults. Services provided allow them to remain living independently in their own homes and avoid or delay unnecessary placement in long term care facilities.
The Greater Ishpeming Commission on Aging is a nonprofit, 501c3 corporation which operates the Ishpeming Multi-Purpose Senior Center and is funded by the Marquette County Senior Millage, Michigan Office of Services to the Aging, Region 11 Area Agency on Aging, United Way of Marquette County, state and federal funds, and contributions from local businesses, organizations and individuals. In accordance with all applicable Federal & State regulations the GICOA does not discriminate in the provisions of services or employment.
All meetings begin at 9 a.m., at the Ishpeming Senior Center, 700 East North Street, Phelps Building, Lower Level in Ishpeming typically on the third Monday of every month. Board members and the general public will be informed of any changes to date, time or place. Dates may be subject to change.
