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.

• Persons age 60 or better 
• Adults age 18-59 with physical disabilities

for programs and services that help fulfill it. No experience on governing boards or advisory committees is necessary.
