The Office for Aging will soon have a new Director.

The Broome County Office for Aging has always had a very high reputation as being one of the best agencies across New York state. I’m just looking forward to enhance any services that we can for seniors, and work with the issues that are facing the elderly in our growing older population here in Broome County. - Lisa Schuhle, Acting OFA Director
