SCSEP National Training in Seattle
May 22 , 2023
During the week of May 22, NAPCA hosted its first in-person SCSEP (Senior Community Service Employment Program) National Training in four years. The training took place in NAPCA’s Seattle headquarters where NAPCA SCSEP staff and subgrantees were invited to participate.
Jo Park, NAPCA’s Chief Programs Officer, “It has been an honor for NAPCA to host this training. Not only did NAPCA SCSEP staff (from Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Chicago, and Rural Illinois) play a major role, but partners from Chinatown Community Center (Houston), Korean Services Center of Metropolitan New York, Greater Boston Chinese Golden Age Center, Self-Help for the Elderly (California), SER Jobs for Progress (California), and ACC Senior Services Sacramento also contributed significantly to the success of this training. I am constantly in awe and inspired by their leadership and passion for serving our communities. We look forward to our continued partnerships and upcoming events this winter and in the many years ahead. NAPCA is committed to serving our communities at the national and local level with their leadership.”

Our 2022 in Numbers
In response to COVID-19, NAPCA launched its free 1-800 Multilingual Phone Helpline for older adults and caregivers in March 2020. From March 2020 to June 2022, the Helpline received over 14,202 calls from 10+ states. NAPCA’s Helpline counselors provide in-language support for COVID-19 Vaccine and COVID-19 emergency resources, Social Security, Medicare, general public benefits and more. NAPCA’s Helpline was featured by QUARTZ and covered by NBC News.
In 2020, NAPCA’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), in partnership with the US Department of Labor and over 400+ community based organizations, placed over 1047 older adults in non-profits and government agencies across the country. NAPCA worked with them to develop skills training to find employment, and quickly shifted to a virtual format to keep participants engaged and paid throughout the pandemic.
The Senior Environmental Employment program (SEE) placed 162 working older adults in the Environmental Protection Agency. Of these, over 50% of the participants were age 70+.
NAPCA was one of 20 national non-profit organizations to receive a $14 million award per year, totaling $56 million to continue operating the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) over the next 4 years. SCSEP participants will operate in 59 counties in 7 states.
NAPCA is partnering with the University of California San Francisco to develop the nation’s first research registry for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and is actively recruiting 4,000 individuals. Learn about why this is important: CARE research registry.
The NAPCA website received almost 74,000 views throughout 2022. Of these, our National Resource Center for Older Adults and Caregivers and related resource pages received over 27,000 views. These include multilingual state-by-state resources, toolkits and guides for caregivers and organizations, and time sensitive resources around the 2020 Census and Presidential election.
We are NAPCA
Our mission is to preserve and promote the dignity, well-being, and quality of life of Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and diverse communities as they age.
