LCOA Mission and Programs
The Lafayette Council on Aging, Inc. is a non-profit (IRS 501, c3) organization which operates a broad range of programs, under the provisions of a state charter which was issued in November 1965.
The Lafayette Council on Aging, Inc. acts in an advocacy capacity on behalf of the elderly population of the Parish of Lafayette.
The Mission of the Council is to enhance the well-being of the elderly by providing an expanding and innovative range of services delivered with respect, care and compassion; upholding the dignity and independence of the individual.
The programs of the LCOA are aimed at reaching those most in need of services and who find themselves alone, isolated, lonely and in need. The main goal of the Council is to keep the elderly living at home as long as possible and to enrich the quality of life.
