National Hispanic Council on Aging

The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) is the nation’s premier constituency-based organization that advocates, celebrates, and enhances the quality of life for Hispanic older adults, their families, and their communities. Headquartered in Washington, DC, NHCOA empowers its national network of 42 community-based organizations (CBOs) in supporting a broader network of 7,000 individuals and reaching 10 million Hispanics each year.

The health and wellbeing of our padres and abuelitos is directed related to the care and nurturing they receive from their families and communities. Therefore, as an organization with almost 40 years’ experience and a strong community presence, we focus on sharing the best of us so that our elders fully enjoy their golden years in good health and securely alongside friends and family.

To accomplish this goal, NHCOA works closely with its national network of affiliates, government agencies, and private-sector entities to promote high-quality services and effectively advocate for our aging Hispanic population.

At the local level, NHCOA provides CBOs with training, technical assistance, sub-grants, and access to the latest research and most effective programs. NHCOA also helps local groups form partnerships and coalitions to enhance their resources, influence, and reach. At the national level, NHCOA educates legislators on the aging community’s needs and contributions, and contributes to crafting permanent solutions for the public policy issues compromising the security, health, happiness, and dignity of America’s fastest-growing senior population.
