Brad Berens, former chief executive of the SCV Committee on Aging – which runs the SCV Senior Center and other properties – has been named interim executive director of the Antelope Valley Committee on Aging.
The AVCOA operates the Antelope Valley Senior Center, Palmdale Senior Center and a facility at Jackie Robinson Park in Littlerock.
A Santa Clarita resident, Berens left the SCV Committee on Aging in June 2010 after a 19-year career in which his name became synonymous with the local senior center. He then ran Ventura County Caregivers, a nonprofit agency serving homebound seniors, before joining the Antelope Valley nonprofit in September.
A statement from AVCOA Board President Steve Angebrandt said Berens “shall assume the day-to-day operations as the interim executive director while the board conducts a search for a new permanent executive director.”
“Mr. Berens will initially look at expanding opportunities for our more than 2,200 participants in the Fifth District of Los Angeles County that includes the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster and the unincorporated areas and townships of Acton, Leona Valley, Lake Hughes, Lake Elizabeth, Little Rock, Pearblossom, Llano, Lake Los Angeles and the Antelope Acres,” the statement said.
AVCOA has been providing services to the Antelope Valley’s senior communities for 36 years.
