The National Council on Aging (NCOA) is a nonprofit service and advocacy organization headquartered in Washington, DC.

Originally formed in response to concerns about rising health costs and mandatory retirement, this organization continues to champion issues and create innovative programs that reflect core values and focus on making life better for older adults, especially those with limited income and resources.

NCOA is a national voice for older Americans and the community organizations that serve them. They bring together nonprofit organizations, businesses, and government to develop creative solutions that improve the lives of all older adults. And NCOA works with thousands of organizations across the country to help seniors find jobs and benefits, improve their health, live independently, and remain active in their communities.

Vision: A just and caring society in which each of us, as we age, lives with dignity, purpose, and security.

Mission: To improve the lives of millions of older adults, especially those who are vulnerable and disadvantaged.
