History of COAHP




With the intent of forming a cohesive community of providers to better address the needs of Nebraskans, several coalitions were formed in the late-1980’s, under the direction of Governor Kay Orr (1987-1991).

These coalitions address the needs of people with developmental disabilities, children, families, and the elderly.  Since that time, only one coalition remains – the Coalition for Older Adult Health Promotion.  The Coalition addresses needs, concerns and legislation pertaining to Older Adults. Members are able to network in a pressure free environment and have an open forum to discuss thoughts and ideas to improve the quality of Southeast Nebraskans.
