Lolita Kintanar

Community organizer

Lolita Kintanar has devoted her life to supporting the Filipino community, seniors, and people with disabilities. She worked for many years as Director of Canon Kip Senior Center, a program of the Episcopal Community Services, a nonprofit organization which provides food, jobs, and other services for seniors, people with disabilities, and unhoused people. Though technically retired, Kintanar is active with the Felton Institute and serves on the boards of the Pilipino Senior Resource Center and API Legal Outreach. She was named one of the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the U.S. by the Filipina Women’s Network, and fittingly, her birthday is on International Women’s Day.
