We are excited to announce that this year’s Our Community: Aging & Disability Conference will be taking place as a webinar series! This ADRC webinar series, aimed at people with disabilities, older adults, caregivers, community organizations and providers, will focus on four major subject areas critical to these attendees and extremely relevant to the times in which we are living.
We are proud to release the first “Our Community” Aging And Disability webinar series, titled “Emergency Preparedness for All”. This webinar is made possible with the help of LISTOS California, the Center on Disability at the Public Health Institute, and Nevada County.

The Aging and Disability Resource Connection of Nevada County (ADRC) is launching the 2020 agency cross training program.
Purpose and Goals
The ADRC of Nevada County and the Community Living Implementation Council (CLiC) functioning as the ADRC Advisory Committee are a network of organizations that work together to make access to services easier for older adults, people with disabilities and family care providers. To accomplish this goal it is critical that all partners understand the resources and services being provided by all other ADRC partners and community organizations that serve this population.
Audiences for the training will include leadership and line-staff of ADRC Core Partners, Extended Partners, and community organizations.
