ABOUT ECVCOA...

Back in 1964, Governor John McKeithen signed into law an act to establish Parish Voluntary Councils on Aging. The East Carroll Voluntary Council on Aging was chartered in 1968. Our Senior Center is located in East Carroll Parish in the Northeast corner of Louisiana. We are an independent entity with a staff of 7 and provide a great number of services with our emphasis on Priority Services which include Homemaker, Information & Assistance, Legal Aid, Outreach, Telephoning, Transportation and Visiting. Our funds are received from Federal and State funds along with a parish millage. However, there is never sufficient funding to implement and strengthen the units of service which are budgeted each year. We are proud of the job our aging service has done in the past but we are cognizant of the hard work which still lies ahead. We are confident about the future and can look forward to a continuation of progress in making the retirement years all they should rightfully be.

What we do...

The East Carroll Voluntary Council’s on Aging core programs provide a wide range of in-home and community based supports that are helping older adults remain independent, active and at home.

All ECVCOA services are targeted at clients who are more vulnerable than the overall population of older Louisianans and Older America’s Act clients tend to be among the oldest of the old.

We are striving to do our best to provide a multitude of services to meet the growing population of our seniors in each parish of the state. As a whole the services we provide are designed to allow persons the dignity of residing in their own homes during their...
