Honoring ADRC Volunteers - Rich in Service - Big Hearts!
Volunteers expand programming beyond budgets. In 2014, volunteers generously donated 39,982 hours at a value of $318,923. Volunteers make it possible to serve far more persons than we could do without the benefit of sharing their time and talent. With their help, persons received 582 rides, 2,895 persons enjoyed a noon meal either served at a dining site or delivered to their home. Many learned how to avoid a fall, live better with a chronic condition, understand Medicare and pick the program that works best for them. Volunteers lead exercise classes and workshops, support caregivers, and sit on boards and advisory councils, helping us assure we are providing the services our customers need and want. Thank you to our over 450 volunteers - We couldn't do it without you!

Advocacy Alert - Action Needed
Save Your ADRC - There's No Place Like Home
The Governor's Budget Proposal contains many changes that will affect the lives of seniors and persons with disabilities. Advocacy groups are concerned about these changes and have prepared documents to help educate persons. These groups have also organized events to help inform and mobilize concerned citizens.

  • Are there services that would make your life easier?
  • Are there activities you wish were available in your community?
