What is an Aging and
Disability Resource Connection (ADRC)?

ADRCs provide a central source of current, reliable, and objective information about a broad range of programs or services available to older adults and people with disabilities, regardless of income.

These services help you or your loved ones make informed decisions about living independently with dignity in the setting of choice.

  • Adults with developmental disabilities
