  • Abstract

    The Center for Healthy Aging is a Santa Monica based organization whose main goal is to provide health advice and counselling for senior citizens who might otherwise not be able to afford such care. The Center began in 1976 under the name of Senior Health Peer Counseling; the name was changed to Center for Healthy Aging in 1995. The collection presently contains materials from the governing board meetings, correspondence of the Center's two executive officers, Bernice Bratter (1976-1985) and Monika White (1985-the present), some publications, materials relating to grants and to cooperative efforts between the Center and other charitable organizations on the Westside of Los Angeles.

  • Publication Rights

    Copyright has not been assigned to the California Social Welfare Archives. All requests for permission to publish or quote from manuscripts must be submitted in writing to the Center for Healthy Aging.

  • Acquisition Information

    The material was acquired from the Center for Healthy Aging and its Director, Monika White.

  • Processing Note

    The records were received in fairly good order. For the most part, original order was adhered to in creating the archival files. Exceptions to this rule are to be found mainly in the series dealing with publications, since what there were of these had to be extracted from other files. Newspaper clippings files were only selectively kept; those that appear in the Los Angeles Times or other easily available newspapers were not kept. Some photocopies of newsapers were made for preservation purposes. The Director of the Center has discussed continuing donations of records to the CSWA.
