Community Cafecitos

LSR launched these cafecitos (coffee chats) to increase access to resources and educate older adults, their families, and caregivers in the community about the benefits they may be eligible to apply for. These conversations aim to continue advocating on behalf of aging Latinos and improve the economic security of the Latino community as a whole.

Our community cafecitos (coffee chats) are hosted in various targeted locations to share resources with older adults and their communities.  All discussions are followed by a training on using the NCOA BenefitsCheckupTool© to apply for money-saving benefits.
