We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Sonoma County Aging and Disability Resource Hub. The ADRH simplifies access to health, transportation and nutrition services offered by federal, state and local government agencies and their nonprofit partners.
In Sonoma County, 28 percent of residents are 60 years and older and 25 percent have a disability. Many need similar types of support services to help them remain in their homes and live independently. To aid this population and their caregivers, the county and partner agencies provide a host of services, including food assistance, case management, transportation coordination, caregiver support and more. Trained staff at the new hub will help connect residents and their caregivers with resources they are eligible for.
The Aging & Disability Resource Hub is a collaboration of the county Human Services Department and the Disability Services & Legal Center, a Santa Rosa-based nonprofit.
“We want to make it easier for people to find the support they need to live as independently as possible at home,” said Supervisor Chris Coursey, chair of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. “A key objective in the Board’s five-year Strategic Plan is to create a ‘No Wrong Door’ approach, where clients can easily access services across multiple agencies regardless of where they enter the system.”
The Aging & Disability Resource Hub has developed partnerships with local organizations including Earle Baum Center of the Blind. The hub will be expanding its network by partnering with many other community organizations this year.
This partnership will allow our Sonoma County residents with disabilities, such as vision loss, to access the necessary information to help them live a full and enjoyable life. To access the resource hub, please visit their website www.socoadrh.org.
