OAM History (text provided by

When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living Americans had reached their 65th birthday. About a third of older Americans lived in poverty and there were few programs to meet their needs. Interest in older Americans and their concerns was growing. A meeting in April 1963 between President John F. Kennedy and members of the National Council of Senior Citizens led to designating May as “Senior Citizens Month,” the prelude to “Older Americans Month.”

Historically, Older Americans Month has been a time to acknowledge the contributions of past and current older persons to our country, in particular those who defended our country. Every President since Kennedy has issued a formal proclamation during or before the month of May asking that the entire nation pay tribute in some way to older persons in their communities. Older Americans Month is celebrated across the country through ceremonies, events, fairs, and other such activities.


The Mayor's Commission on Aging (MCOA) works in partnership with the Department of Human Services to develop and evaluate programs to address the special needs of our City’s diverse senior residents. A primary function of the Commission is to support the City’s network of Senior Centers.

The Commission on Aging is chartered for 11 members, nominated by the City Council or the Mayor. The diverse Commission membership represents the variety of communities in the City of Oakland.
