Have you seen our ads on TV or heard them on the radio? We received a grant to help us get the word out to help more people of Brown County know about their ADRC and what it can do for them. Take a look at this ADRC ad and tell your friends about us!

Information & Assistance Specialist search through available resources to put together options to assist you in making informed decisions and then help connect you to the services you choose.

Disability Benefit Specialists “cut the red tape” which can be a barrier for persons trying to understand whether they are eligible for assistance. They can also assist persons who have been denied benefits and need to appeal a decision. They help negotiate with public agencies, medical offices, or insurance companies to resolve problems.
