The City of Los Angeles is home to one of the largest senior populations in the United States. The Los Angeles Department of Aging (LADOA) provides community based services to the City’s aging population that includes nutrition, transportation, legal assistance, and Project CARE.


Caring Actions Responding to Elders

Since 2006, LADOA in partnership with City employees, the Los Angeles Foundation on Aging, and the Los Angeles Police Department Detective Bureau collaborate to provide low-income older adults a holiday gift bag during the winter holidays. All other adults enrolled in various senior center programs are eligible to be part of Project CARE. Annually, we prioritize those who are homebound, disabled, and isolated.

Project CARE has grown and evolved throughout the years, but some things remain constant. It is a program that relies on your generosity and collectively validates that we care about older adults.

Sponsor or donate to this great program! It is a truly rewarding experience. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

**If Neighborhood Councils want to participate, they have to do so as individuals. Neighborhood Councils cannot use public funds as a gift to individuals, nor can they use a Neighborhood Purpose Grant (NPG) to sponsor a senior.**
