From the Series:

The Elder Services series documents the administration of the Aliancianos Social Club and the Adult Day Health Center. Materials include activity calendars, correspondence, interoffice memoranda, newsletters produced by the department and publicity materials describing the programs. Also included are attendance lists of the participants, client profiles, and client statistics. Of special interest are two reports found in the Resource Files, one conducted by the Boston Commission on Affairs of the Elderly, "Boston Elders: A Survey of Needs" (1978), and the other by the Economic and Employment Policy Administration of Boston, "Boston's Hispanic Older Workers" (1981). Both reports analyze the needs of Latino elders in various areas including transportation, health, employment, and housing.
