Services for the Elders

native sagePicayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians Administration On Aging Department offers a variety of programs. We help support the Tribal Elders dignity, independence and retain their health.


Hot Meal Program
The Title VI Program helps provide a free well balanced hot meal to an enrolled home bound AoA 4member, age 55 or older, of any Federally recognized tribe living within the program service area (Coarsegold, Oakhurst, Ahwahnee and Bass Lake). This individual would be considered an eligible participant. AOA hot mealEligibility will also include a spouse, handicapped or disabled family members living in the same household as the Eligible Participant (handicapped or disabled to be defined by Tribe on individual basis).

Nutrition Program

The Elders Food Card program is a way to ensure that our elders are able to buy groceries when needed and still have ample money to spend on healthy food choices. This program does not condone the purchase of Alcohol or Tobacco products.

Utility Assistance Program
For all elders there is a Utility Assistance program to be used on the following: electricity, propane, gas, wood, water, sewer, septic, garbage and/or telephone.

AoA 7Arts & Crafts Program
The Arts & Crafts Program is a part of our Congregate Meal service which is held on Wednesdays and Fridays located in the AOA Room. This program will continue as soon as the Tribal Office is up and running again.
