Shasta County Older Adult Policy Council  

- “A Voice for Seniors”

Our vision is that seniors:

  • Have a support system, are active and valued community members.
  • Have access to health care, affordable medication, transportation, appropriate housing, and financial security.
  • Are healthy, safe and live with dignity.
  • Are optimistic about their future, involved and connected to their community.
  • Continue to learn and grow and share lessons learned with others.


“A public/private partnership that enhances the well being of Shasta County seniors.”


The Older Adult Policy Council meets on the first Thursday of the month at 8:30 a.m. at the Shasta Senior Nutrition Program, 100 Mercy Oaks Dr, Redding, Ca 96003. For more information, please call Susan Wilson at (530) 524-4777.
