ADRC Board Seeks New Members

The Aging & Disability Resource Center of Barron, Rusk and Washburn Counties (ADRC) is currently looking for people interested in serving on the governing board. The mission of the ADRC is to provide older adults and people with disabilities the resources needed to live with dignity and security, and stay as independence as possible and have a high quality of life.  The ADRC helps people make the most of their own resources, stay independent and delay or prevent the need for potentially expensive long-term care.

The governing board serves in an advisory & policy-making role and is not involved in the day-to-day operations of the ADRC. Board members must represent one of the customer groups we serve.  Are you qualified to represent any of the following?

  • Persons age 60 or better
  • Adults age 18-59 with physical disabilities
  • Adults with intellectual/cognitive disabilities
  • Family caregivers or legal guardians
  • Youth who will soon be receiving adult services

Qualified applicants must be interested in preserving the ADRC’s mission and advocating for programs and services that help fulfill it.  No experience on governing boards or advisory committees is necessary. 

Please submit this completed application, or for more information, please contact one of the ADRC Interim Directors-Jennifer Jako, jennifer.jako@co.barron.wi.us or Mary Updike, mary.updike@co.barron.wi.u
