As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Goans of America (G.O.A.), Los Angeles has grown and evolved since it was founded in 1970. There are over 400 Goan families in Southern California today, and now activities run year round. But much is the same. The G.O.A. is still an organization dedicated to unifying our Goan community here in the Southern California area.
This is an organization dedicated to bringing people together. We aim to foster friendship, camaraderie and a sense of pride in our culture and heritage. We consider ourselves one big happy Goan family, and our family is scattered all over California and Arizona.
Join us! We're a means to pass our culture and values to our children, and of course, a way for us all to enjoy ourselves.
It has now been over 40 years since the founding, and the G.O.A. is still alive and kicking, only hoping to grow in its lasting impact and influential in the lives of Southern California Goans!
