Our History

Our organization, Arizona Association of Homes for the Aging, was incorporated on March 21, 1985 by a group of forward thinking not-for-profit senior homes and housing providers. The purpose: to advocate and educate for not-for-profit providers and the seniors they serve. We changed our name to Arizona Association of Homes and Housing for the Aging (AzAHA) in 1993, and again, in 2008 to Aging Services of Arizona. In 2011, we changed once more to LeadingAge Arizona, dba: Arizona LeadingAge.
