Message from the Executive Director

Julio Ponce Headshot

At HHA, we are fully committed and devoted to serve our elderly community. Our goal is to positively impact their daily lives and bring them joy. We want to express gratitude to our City Council President, Monica Perez, who hosted the Senior Wedding Vow Renewals on February 15, 2023, this event was very

successful and beautiful. Being a witness of love persevering for over 50 years is hope for today's society. In times when commitment is in question, these couples serve as role models for our new generation. Congratulations to all our beautiful couples renewing their love!

I want to extend my gratitude to Nicole Combeau,

Program Coordinator at the PAMM Museum for bringing a fantastic art program to our seniors who debuted their art pieces on March 25, 2023. Last but not least, I want to thank everyone that participates in our monthly Senior Fire and Fraud prevention program.

"Together, we will continue to make Hialeah thrive".

Thank you for your support and for reading this quarter's newsletter.

Julio Ponce,
Executive Director

The City of Hialeah's President of the City Council, Monica Perez, envisioned a beautiful, elegant celebration of love and commitment for our seniors. On this date, many senior couples had the blessing to renew their vows after fifty years.

Many of our elected officials took part in this lovely celebration. Our beautiful brides were walked down the aisle by Senator Rene Garcia, Councilman Jesus Tundidor, City of Hialeah Firefighters, among many other special guests who helped make this celebration memorable.
