Mission Statement

Covia promotes and cultivates healthy communities for positive aging through an innovative continuum that actively supports the whole person.

Description

Growth, Compassion, Innovation, Commitment, Service. The core outreach programs of Covia Community Services - Senior Resources, Market Day, Well Connected , and Social Call- each address unmet needs of seniors. They provide essentials such as emergency financial assistance, affordable produce, and links to critical services. Covia volunteers also serve in our communities, from Pacific Grove to Santa Rosa, engaging residents and staff by providing companionship, care, and support. The programs also provide intangibles that may prove to be more essential such as affording these adults an improved quality of life, a sense of community, the joy of knowing they are cared for, and a renewed purpose.
