CCCOA – About Us

The CCCoA was organized and incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation in December 1976, by a group interested in the elderly of Collin County. The corporation was formed for the purpose of seeking federal funds to promote better nutrition and additional support services for adults over the age of sixty.

The first senior nutrition program began in 1977 with the opening of three senior centers, Farmersville, McKinney and Plano. A total of one hundred meals were served daily at the three centers. Other senior centers were added through the years. Home delivered meals were served throughout the county. Today, assisted by over 70 volunteers, in excess of 650 home delivered and congregate meals are served daily from our kitchen located in McKinney. During holidays, i.e., Thanksgiving and Christmas, an additional 150 meals are served at our senior centers.

 Transportation for the elderly began in July 1977. Three vans were purchased with federal funds. As the program expanded, the number of vehicles also increased. In 1992, the Collin County Area Regional Transportation, CCART, was born. Today, CCART serves the elderly, MHMR, school districts, and public transportation needs with over 35 vehicles, and over 100,000 riders, and over 1,000,000 miles per year in Collin County.

Additional support services such as Caregiver Support, Case Management, Information Referral, and Outreach have evolved over the years.
