LEON (Latino Elder Outreach Network) is a collaborative group of individuals who come together each month to coordinate efforts on behalf of Latino elders. We operate under the umbrella of the Adult and Aging Network, which is an advisory body to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors.
LEON acts as a clearinghouse for information, data gathering and best practices related to the needs of Latino Elders. Our goal is to engage and empower the Latino community, and to educate the public about the needs of, and resources available to Latino elders. Current membership includes representatives from public, private and non-profit agencies.
