Welcome to SCOPE
SCOPE-Senior Citizen’s Opportunity for Personal Endeavor, has been innovative and has taken risks for 50 years for our seniors in Trumbull County. Since the 1990’s SCOPE has expanded to six senior centers: Champion, Cortland, Lordstown, Howland , Niles, Warren.

We work with hundreds of different groups: governments, hospitals, Adult Protective Services, Jobs and Family Services placement program, Title V- the Mature Worker program of the US Dept. of Labor, other charities such as Catholic Charities and Salvation Army.

We Are Family
 

The centers really provide new opportunities for making friends, learning new skills, and finding a new family.  Staff report that members find such relief to loneliness and isolation that they say, “SCOPE saved my life.”

SCOPE truly provides the support of a family throughout the continuum of later life.  Members range from 50 years old through 102. When children seek work elsewhere, family die or move away, friends disappear because of death or moving to be near their own families, many are left here alone.

SCOPE does all we can. We provide many services to meet our seniors needs so we can become a one stop source of helping to keep older adults happy in this community. (USA census figures are ten years old, but it is my estimate that at least half the population in Trumbull County is over 50 years old facing either forced retirement or living out life in place on memories and the possibilities provided by SCOPE.  The fastest growing segment in the population in Trumbull County is those 80 plus years old.

We are family for many, from those making new friends over lunch or a dance, or a lecture on semi-precious stones.
