The LOEL Foundation was started in 1976 by William Holz. With an initial $100,000 bequest, the Foundation was born. The first LOEL site was located at the Hotel Lodi on School Street.
Its mission was to be a Senior Agency congregate nutrition site. However, this mission quickly blossomed into one of serving the educational, health, and social needs of the senior community.
In 1978 the center's programs were able to expand when Mr. Holz purchased a vacant church on South Washington Street.
Our efforts, in turn, have made Mr. Holz's dream to love and care for the senior community of Lodi a reality.
Our mission is to empower the Greater Lodi Area senior adults to live independent, meaningful, healthy, and dignified lives through social interaction, advocacy, leadership and innovation with efficient and effective policies, programs, and services.
