Avoyelles Council On Aging

     The Avoyelles Council on Aging was chartered in June of 1966.  The ACOA was originally housed in a one-room office in the Avoyelles Parish Court House and had six employees.  Under the direction of Joyce LaBorde (who retired in 2004) the ACOA established many needed services for the elderly of Avoyelles Parish.

       Today, the AOCA has nine senior sites across the parish  and a transportation unit that covers three parishes with plans to expand in the future.  Through partnerships with local and state agencies, the AOCA offers a wide range of services to the senior citizens of Avoyelles Parish.  Since the beginning, the board of director's goal has been to provide quality services to the elderly of Avoyelles Parish.
