MISSION STATEMENT
The Hopkinton Council on Aging seeks to enhance and enrich the quality of life for adults aged 60 and older in the Town of Hopkinton, by providing activities and services that encourage independence, healthy living and continued participation in the community.

We envision a Hopkinton where seniors are valued and respected part of the community, where they have active and independent lives, and live safely in their homes and community for as long as they choose. Hopkinton should be seen as a place to retire as well as raise your family.
