The Corporation for Ohio Appalachian Development (COAD) is a private, non-profit community-based organization serving rural, mostly Appalachian, counties in eastern and southern Ohio. It is comprised of seventeen Community Action Agencies that serve a 30 county area. COAD’s Senior Programs have provided volunteer opportunities for individuals age 55 and older. The programs are designed to help older Ohioans find meaningful community service opportunities as mentors and tutors to disadvantaged children and youth, and to other senior citizens who need supportive service to remain in their own homes.
