AIA History

In 1966, the present day Aging in America was born from the consolidation of two vital, established communities for the aged in New York City: St. Luke’s Home for Aged Women and The Peabody Home.The legacy of these organizations lives on over a century and a half later with an unwavering commitment to serving the needs and interests of the elderly population of New York with compassion and dignity.
