Mission Statement

The National Association for Hispanic Elderly / Asociación Nacional Pro Personas Mayores is committed to achieving social change by focusing on the needs of low-income minority and Hispanic older persons, thus impacting the Hispanic community and the nation as a whole. We believe in the right of each human being to have a decent and dignified life. Because of this belief, we attempt to provide some visible means of achieving such a way of life, especially for low-income older persons, many of whom, because of language and cultural differences, are more vulnerable than their contemporaries. In response to the needs of the low-income elderly, we provide programs of employment and training, health, housing and economic development. Aware of ongoing societal changes, we attempt to remain open and creative in our corporate commitment to older persons and the Hispanic Community.
