Office for Aging & Disabled Citizens
The Office for Aging & Disabled Citizens provides leadership to and participates in community activities, advocating for rights, policies and funding that can enhance the lives and independence of seniors and disabled individuals.
What we do:
- The office works to ensure efficient and timely access to information and resources by and for aging and disabled citizens. We do this by providing information on community resources to the community at large.
- We educate the community on the needs of aging and disabled citizens; serve as a resource for giving information and referrals to individual citizens and provide consultation to community groups on aging and disability issues.
- We participate in community initiatives to sustain and improve services and funding to aging and disabled citizens.
