About the Organization:
The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCoA) was founded in 1980 in Washington, DC as a national membership-based organization. It is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Latino elderly, families, and communities through advocacy, capacity and institution building, development of educational materials, technical assistance, demonstration projects, policy analysis and research. The National Hispanic Council on Aging keeps it members informed about issues critical to Latino seniors, especially those pertaining to health, income, education, employment, housing, strengthening of families, and building communities. NHCoA participates in national and local coalitions, task forces, and committees that address these issues and their impact on Latino seniors and collaborates with its local chapters and affiliates to demonstrate programs and approaches to this population.
