We believe people should be independent.
We’re helping them live that way.
The Council on Aging St. Tammany (COAST) has helped seniors achieve and maintain independence since 1968. Our activities range from providing transportation to delivering nutritious meals to the homebound. We’re a private, non-profit organization, and we offer our services at no cost to those we help.
Part of making life easier and better for seniors is finding information and making it readily available. Seniors come to us to learn about employment, recreation, mental and physical health and other factors that affect the quality of their lives. We gather data from local, state and national sources and present it in useful, practical terms.
We are advocates for seniors. We conduct public forums on relevant issues. We recommend improvements to existing services and suggest new ways of serving seniors. We coordinate our services with those of other local agencies. We work with the Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs and other departments of state government.
COAST strives to provide St. Tamany Parish seniors with unparalleled services in order to maintain and enhance their quality of life, independence, and involvement in the community. If you or someone you know could use our help, please contact us at:
