What is an Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC)?
ADRCs are partnerships between a local independent living center, Area Agency on Aging, and other partners who work with people with disabilities and seniors. The idea is for key service providers in a community to come together to break down barriers and advocate for expanded services across the lifespan.
Why Join your local ADRC Advisory Committee?
For ADRC’s to be effective, they need the voices of those with lived experience with disability, aging, and or long-term services and supports. If you are looking for ways to get more involved in your community and improve access to services, this is a chance to do that.
