For over 60 years, NCOA has had a fire in its belly for its mission: “to improve the lives of millions of older adults, especially those who are vulnerable and disadvantaged." NCOA's longevity and effectiveness can be attributed to its particular strength in three areas: commitment to its mission, organizational DNA that’s wired for innovation, and ardent advocacy on behalf of disadvantaged elders.
* Mission: Struggling seniors are an all-too-often overlooked segment of American society. NCOA’s programs have a profound impact on this group by bringing jobs, benefits, food security, health self-management and more directly to the people. NCOA has not faltered in its focus; it is a mission-oriented nonprofit.
* Innovation: Not content to keep doing programs as they’ve always been done, NCOA’s genius lies in its commitment to innovation, to figuring out new and better ways to bring more jobs, more benefits, more self-management skills, more food security and a host of other much-needed services to the people who need them. Just one example among many is the online BenefitsCheckUp that helps connect low-income seniors with government benefits that they qualify for.
* Advocacy: NCOA is a tireless advocate for struggling older adults who live in hard economic times. To help the voiceless be heard, NCOA launched the brilliant videobased “One Away” campaign to bring attention to elders who live one misfortune away from calamity.
NCOA is a mission-oriented, results-driven organization making a big difference in the lives of older Americans. This country needs NCOA.
