Boulder County's Local Coordinating Council (LCC) is a collaborative of local agencies working together to provide accessible, affordable, and equitable
transportation options, while raising awareness that
transportation is a basic social and economic need. BCAAA staff regularly contribute to this collaborative, keeping the transportation needs of older adults a key part of the group's conversations.

The LLC created this Transportation
Testimonials Video
that demonstrates the importance of transportation to older adults, people with disabilities and low-income families.

Nearly 300 people joined us last week for our inaugural nutrition conference, Everybody's Table. Attendees accessed nutrition resources, demonstrations, and counseling and were treated to a rousing presentation on diet and healthy aging by local expert, Dr. Coco Dughi. We were also able to offer live translation via personal headsets, allowing about a dozen Spanish-speaking older adults the chance to participate as well! Many thanks to the countless community partners who made this event such a success.
