The mission of Highland Valley Elder Services (HVES), Inc. is to serve older adults and their families through collaboration, education, advocacy, and a range of programs designed to support them where they live. Please see our Corporate Mission and Core Values statement. HVES is a private, not-for-profit corporation that serves elders, their families and care givers in twenty-four communities in Hampshire and Hampden Counties of western Massachusetts. The agency receives funds from two main sources: the Administration on Aging (AoA), (federal funds) through its designation as an Area Agency on Aging (AAA), and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA), (state funds) through its designation as a Home Care Corporation/Aging Services Access Point (ASAP). Our best services are those that empower elders to discover their own strengths, their own talents, their own solutions.
