WELCOME

MISSION

Founded in 1991, the Latino Center on Aging (LCA) seeks to advocate for improved services for Latino seniors, and educate the seniors about various options available to them. This mission is achieved through various forms of education through the media, testimony at public hearings, and the organization of conferences addressing the issues affecting Latino elderly.

Due primarily to language and cultural barriers, Hispanic seniors lack knowledge and access to the myriad of services available to them.

As they continue aging, this elderly group is most inclined to live in poverty and isolation, and therefore in great need of proactive social and health service assistance.  The Latino Center on Aging (LCA) seeks to advocate for improved services for Latino seniors, and educate the seniors about various options available to them.

Florida has been experiencing significant demographical changes.  Just over half a million Hispanic elderly reside in South Florida, which is expected to grow to 1,000,000 during next 25 years.  We have identified Spanish radio broadcasts as the most effective way to reach and meet the special needs of this increasing population.
