Leading the way. That’s what NAPCA has been doing since 1979, when the specific needs of the aging Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) population were recognized at the federal level. NAPCA has directly served tens of thousands of AAPI seniors who represent the fastest-growing segment of the aging population in the country. The AAPI aging community is faced with many unique challenges, including cultural and language barriers and access to services and employment opportunities. NAPCA has brought critical issues impacting the AAPI aging community to the forefront of national debates. Today, NAPCA is recognized as the nation’s leader in helping the AAPI aging community.
