Latino Golden Age
The Latino Golden Age Committee is a coalition of representatives from community-based organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life of Philadelphia’s Latino elders. Latino Golden Age was created to advocate, educate, and serve as a voice for the Latino elderly in Philadelphia. LGAC has served the community for over twenty years. We serve our Latino older adults through monthly workshops (Puentes de Oro) at the older adult centers. One of our goals is to bring back the intergenerational experience with Puentes de Oro. LGAC hosts an annual educational conference full of workshops, art, music, and food where we honor and celebrate our Seniors with Leadership awards; honorees are chosen by their peers. The strength of this committee has been possible through the organizational representation of the following: Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, SeniorLaw, Aramingo Adult Day Care, Norris Square Neighborhood Project, Norris Square Older Adult Center, Attorney General’s Office, Gateway Health, Penn Nursing, and CARIE.
