Thank you to our Commissioner

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic the needs and supports of our community have become more imperative than ever before. As such, Adams County established the Aging Services Response and Recovery Team which has been instrumental in strategizing how to best support our Adams County aging community. The Aging Services Response and Recovery Team is championed by Commissioner O’Dorisio with the support of various community leaders, including representation from Senior Hub, Servicios de la Raza, Adams County Aging Network, and DRCOG. This group has formulated strategies to ensure older adults have access to critical resources and work to combat feelings of isolation and loneliness. Thank you, Adams County and all our partners!
