ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) — the leading national organization working to improve the lives of Hispanic older adults, their families, and caregivers — would like to express its gratitude to the individuals and organizations that contributed to the completion of this important project and the development of this report. In particular, NHCOA warmly thanks the Arcus Foundation for its generous support of the project and development of the report. Thanks to its unwavering support, NHCOA was able to conduct the needs assessment and produce this report. Several NHCOA staff worked on the development and implementation of this project. Maria Eugenia Hernández-Lane, NHCOA Vice President, led the development and implementation of the needs assessments project and the preparation of this report. Jason Coates, Public Policy Associate, conducted the literature review and provided important insight on the development of the moderator’s guide. Nataly Arce, Special Events Associate, provided assistance with forums, logistics, and participants’ recruitment. Martha Peredo, Editor, offered editorial oversight. We would also like to acknowledge Ivonne Rivera, President of the Rivera Group, for providing her expertise facilitating the forums and providing a topline report. We extend a special thanks to the focus group and in-depth interview participants – older adults, caregivers, and service providers – who gave their time and shared their personal experiences, stories, and perceptions. Their views will continue to serve as an important force for raising and addressing the needs of LGBT Hispanic older adults in the U.S.
