Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

ACCA works to serve as a comprehensive resource for aging adults and their families who need and desire the essentials to age and live well. Our programs and services address basic needs, such as food and transportation, and personal fulfillment gained through building relationships, expanding knowledge, and making meaningful contributions to the community. With more than 50 years of experience, ACCA helps people navigate – and celebrate – life’s second half, positively impacting their health and well-being, and making their communities
an even better place to live.

We offer a wide variety of programs to support and sustain our area's older adult population including: Meals on Wheels, Care Management, Transportation, Center for Active Living, Adult Day Health centers, employment and/or volunteer opportunities for seniors and benefits counseling. By having all of these services co-located within one organization we are able to assess and address the needs of those we serve efficiently and effectively.

ACCA has been the primary provider of aging services in Northeast Georgia since 1967, and this longevity and continuity provide a stable base for relationships with stakeholders, clients, and volunteers. Our programs and services ensure that older adults residing in Athens-Clarke and the surrounding counties have access to basic needs.
Administrative staff provide financial accountability, assist with fundraising, monitor programs, and assist with the completion of grant and other reports. ACCA operates under established Policies and Procedures including personnel, travel, financial, health and safety, and disaster preparedness policies, as well as program-specific policies. Impact-based programming is required for all ACCA programs, utilizing logic models through a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process. Annually, program and agency outcomes are established by administration and program staff.
ACCA is a contracted provider of the Northeast Georgia Area Agency on Aging's Home and Community-Based services, and provides services reimbursed through contracts with the federal, state, and local government, Medicaid, United Way, private, corporate, and foundation grants or donations, and individual client fees.

In FY 2022 ACCA served 16,548 people. We provided: 78,692 meals through home delivery and congregate settings, 8,496 transportation trips, and 11,179 days of care in Adult Day Health.
In our FY 2022 satisfaction surveys 90% of clients said the services they received from ACCA allowed them to remain living in their homes, 90% said they had received additional help, 91% said their social opportunities had increased, and 99% said their health had maintained or improved.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
