Welcome To Peninsula Task Force on Aging

The Peninsula Task Force on Aging (PenTFA) is a non-profit group of professionals and individuals who are dedicated to improving the quality of life for seniors throughout the Hampton Roads community. PenTFA was established to serve as a forum to share information, to promote inter-agency understanding, and to work together as advocates, educators and legislative activists to address the issues of older adults.

The work of the task force is vital and our seniors are counting on us to stand up and make a difference. Our hope is we can count on your support. Together we can work to see lives changed and restore hope to one of the most vulnerable populations in our community.

Meetings are held the fourth Thursday of each month. Meeting locations vary each month. The Task Force welcomes anyone who is interested in enriching the lives of seniors.

Senior Day at the Capital

Senior Day at the Capital

As a part of the Peninsula Task Force on Aging, we are dedicated to advocating for our seniors in the community to ensure their needs are met by the Legislature on every level in three key areas: Transportation, Health Care & Housing. Senior Day at the Capital acts as a catalyst to bring together our aging community and its advocates to propel our state Legislature to establish and maintain our seniors’ rights.

On Tuesday, January 29th, PenTFA members along with 20 additional seniors headed to Richmond to get our voices heard.  The day begun with meeting various Legislators to hear about their plans for seniors & bill proposals they have created that directly impact seniors.  We trekked over to the Capital building to be introduced in the Senate Chambers by Senator Monty Mason (in addition on behalf of Mamie Locke and Tommy Norment) and then introduced in the House Chambers by Delegate Marcia Price.   Our day ended on a high note with a luncheon with Governor Ralph Northam, Attorney General Mark Herring and Secretary of Healthy and Human Services Dr. Daniel Carey.
