It's more important than ever to support the Friends of the Council on Aging so that we can make sure that we can best serve the older adults when they need us the most.
The Friends of the Duxbury Council on Aging is a nonprofit organization established to assist the Duxbury COA in providing services, resources, and activities for seniors in the Town of Duxbury.

Although fundraising is our main mission, our volunteering extends to many other COA programs because we know how important the Center is to our friends and neighbors who need social services, rides to appointments, support in caring for a loved one, financial advice, and most importantly, the opportunity for social interaction.
These are just some of the numbers that show what we can do together:
- We had 39,787 people participate in 3,410 programs and activities offered at the Center.
- 7,104 meals were delivered to the homebound of our community.
- 29 extraordinary Lifelong Learning courses were offered in history, art, music, literature, currents events, religion, and science.
- 260 days of respite were provided to caregivers while their loved ones attend the supportive day program for adults with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
