For Providers and Partners – ADRC Program Overview
The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) initiative began as a collaborative effort between the State of California, the federal Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Veterans Administration (VA).
The ADRC’s purpose is to provide a single more coordinated system for people seeking reliable information and access to Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS). This purpose is achieved by building community partnerships, providing services using a person-centered approach, and reducing the number of barriers for accessing services.
ADRCs are intended to act as a “No Wrong Door” system which enables people of all ages, incomes, and disabilities to connect with any one ADRC partner organization for accessing a wide array of Long-Term Services and Support options in the community. ADRCs support the needs of caregivers and respect the diversity of families and cultures that make up their local communities.
