How SAGA Started
On September 21, 2011 a group of seven individuals representing businesses and organizations who share a passion for seniors converged after a Connecting to Serve Meeting. The concept of the group emerged from a greater movement to make Ahwatukee an even better place to live for Seniors.
Among the group, Gregg Powell expressed that he had a long time dream of starting a task force for the benefit of seniors. Connecting to Serve encouraged Gregg and the rest of the group to bring community leaders to the table. On October 12, 2011 the first meeting was held and dreams became reality.
Determined to make SAGA about people, the members felt the acronym “SAGA” would remind them of the importance of each Senior’s unique life history and how it is relevant to SAGA’s mission. The task force was named the Senior Advocacy Group of Ahwatukee, SAGA.
SAGA was founded in September 2011, and was incorporated as an Arizona Nonprofit in Novermber 2013.
