- Agency History
- The Mayor's Office of Community Services (MOCS) was created in late 1984 / early 1985 to replace the Philadelphia Allied Action Commission (PAAC). It continued many of the same programs initially started by PAAC. It operates 12 area neighborhood offices, and three advisory committees assist it with its mission: the Mayor's Office of Community Services Advisory Committee, the Foster Grandparents Advisory Council, and the West Oak Lane Senior Center Advisory Council. The first-mentioned is the successor to PAAC.
