The mission of the Marblehead Council on Aging is to enhance the quality of life for seniors and to promote respect and good will in the community by informing, educating and advocating for seniors and those who care for them and to provide services and activities which promote healthy, successful and enjoyable living.

The Council on Aging (COA), established in 1969, is a department of the municipal government of Marblehead, authorized under Chapter 40 Section 8B of the Massachusetts General Laws.

The council's nine members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen, as is the Executive Director. The COA is responsible for the Senior Center located in the Marblehead Community Center, 10 Humphrey Street. View directions to the Senior Center.

Board meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 3:15 p.m. at the Center.
