The ADRC of Nevada County is a collaboration between FREED, the Agency on Aging / Area 4 and partner organizations designed to streamline access to services for people with disabilities, older adults, family members and caregivers.
The vision to create the ADRC of Nevada County began over 15 years ago through the Long Term Care Implementation Council (LTC). In 2010, the LTC applied for the State Independent Living Council (SILC) ADRC grant. That same year, the LTC was renamed the Community Living Implementation Council (CLiC), which has served as the ADRC Advisory Committee since the creation of the ADRC of Nevada County.
The ADRC of Nevada County received the first rural ADRC designation in California.
The ADRC of Nevada County will provide easy access to a broad array of services, a continuum of help in accessing services and advocacy for individuals desiring long term support services and information.
