Pullman Community Council on Aging

A homegrown nonprofit with a legacy of caring

A legacy of caring for Pullman seniors

Pullman Community Council on Aging is truly a home-grown nonprofit.  Created by town leaders in 1973, has been working to support Pullman seniors, improve the quality of their lives, and bring together senior-focused community members and partner organizations into a collaborative alliance ever since.

Through generous community support, both financial and in the form of volunteers, Pullman has demonstrated a commitment to being a senior-friendly town.

As part of our mission to identify needs, develop solutions, and connect resources, Council members and community partners meet monthly. All are welcome!

Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The meeting location is usually Pullman Senior Center, located in the new Pullman City Hall, 190 SE Crestview Drive.  Look for signs directing you to the Parks & Recreation part of the building.  Joining through Zoom is also an option, please contact us for a Zoom link.
