COAST, the Council on Aging for St. Tammany Parish, strives to provide St. Tammany Parish seniors with unparalleled services in order to maintain and enhance their quality of life, independence, and involvement in the community. 

As part of achieving this mission, every four years, COAST is required by the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs to conduct a Senior Needs and Services Survey. Survey results and feedback from the community and area service providers on the needs of Parish senior citizens and their caregivers has helped COAST develop its four-year strategic plan that will be a guide for the time period of July 2015 – June 2019. 

A Public Hearing will be held on Tuesday, September 30 to present the 2015-2019 Four Year Plan to the community. The hearing will take place at the St. Tammany Parish Council Chambers 21490 Koop Drive, Mandeville, La. from 10 am. – noon. The public is asked to attend to give final input on the Plan and to learn about the programs and services COAST will provide to St. Tammany Parish seniors and their caregivers. 

A special invitation is extended to St. Tammany’s elderly population and to all St. Tammany public officials.
