Brownsburg Older Adult Alliance, Inc. (BOAA) is a 501(c)3 organization which was founded in November 2015 by five women who joined together to enhance the lives of older adults in Brownsburg and its surrounding areas.
BOAA’s programs and services have grown from an annual Holiday Drive providing hygiene and warm items for winter to holding weekly activities. BOAA arranges more than 10 monthly activities for seniors and seasonal service projects including Fall Leaf Cleanup and Holiday Gift-away. BOAA is not only a place for our seniors to connect with the community; in addition, we connect seniors in need with resources. BOAA’s goal is to assist seniors in creating their best life in Brownsburg.
Our Board of Directors
Having served the Brownsburg community in youth activities, church volunteer and town government advisory capacities for many years, Tom Lacey was considering other service opportunities when he learned of BOAA. He immediately liked the idea of service for our elderly. He joined the BOAA Board of Directors in 2016. He has found the organization to be very devoted and committed to making our members' lives more enjoyable and satisfying. Tom presently serves as our Chairman of the Board.
Secretary & Co-founder
One of the founders of the Brownsburg Older Adult Alliance (BOAA),
Jennifer Cox serves as secretary. Jenn saw a tremendous need in the
Brownsburg community when her mom needed activities with other
seniors. Jenn recognized that seniors connecting with each other would
lead to a better quality of life in Brownsburg. Jenn was unable to achieve
this for her mom, as she was already suffering from Alzheimer’s, but Jenn
knew the key to helping other seniors was co-founding BOAA.
Even though Jenn now resides in Michigan, she is still engaged with the
needs of seniors within our community. Some of her favorite services she
helped to create at BOAA are the Newsletter, Hand and Foot Card Club,
Lunch and Take, the Fall Leaf Cleanup, and of course the Holiday Drive,
since that was BOAA’s first project in 2015. Lastly, one of her favorite
things to see is the smiling faces of seniors she has had the pleasure of
knowing through BOAA.
Tom Kmetz has lived in Brownsburg for 20 years with his wife and 2 sons. He is a CPA and works at Mid America Clinical Laboratory as Chief Financial Officer. He is very interested in helping our local seniors and building programs for them. Tom has supported BOAA almost from the beginning with donations for the Holiday Drive. He is glad to be a member of the Board and is looking forward to growing BOAA.
