Incorporated in 1954, SAGE is a private, not-for-profit organization concerned with the health, happiness and general welfare of older citizens and their families. SAGE grew out of a two-year study initiated by the social studies department of the Summit College Club. A local council on aging emerged from the Club's commitment to educate itself and members of the community on issues affecting the elderly. Council representation came from civic groups, churches, social agencies and interested residents. These community efforts resulted in the formation of SAGE.
SAGE is distinguished among eldercare agencies with being both the oldest eldercare agency in New Jersey and one of the few not-for-profit eldercare agencies in the United States that offers a comprehensive array of services under one roof. SAGE has been a pioneer in providing community-based care for the elderly. SAGE started one of New Jersey's first Meals On Wheels programs in 1966 and opened one of New Jersey's first adult day care programs in 1975.
Many of the services and programs provided by SAGE today have been used by other public and private agencies as a model for their programs. SAGE offers fourteen programs and serves 7,000 older adults and their families annually in Union, Essex, Morris, and Somerset Counties and beyond
