Mission and Purpose


LACCOA’s mission is to advocate, advise, and make recommendations regarding the needs and welfare of older adults (60 years of age and older) to the Board of Supervisors, the Aging & Disabilities Department (AD), and other agencies that provide services to older adults regarding their needs, health, well-being, and rights.


LACCOA advocates for relevant, inclusive, and effective services, programs, and policies for LA County’s diverse aging population. LACCOA advises the LA County Area Agency on Aging. By guiding comprehensive, coordinated, and culturally responsive community-based delivery system of services throughout LA County, LACCOA is an essential piece in service delivery – and public service – for LA County’s older adults. LACCOA helps to:

** Build a culture of learning to educate and inform diverse communities on the needs of an aging society, supported by a service structure required to address identified issues;

** Provide intentional strategic support, leadership, and subject matter expertise to further the Area Agency on Aging’s goals and make adjustments as needed; and

** Provide a forum for County departments, community groups, and organizations engaged in aging services, advocacy, and legislative efforts.
