ADRC / No Wrong Door

Community Living - ADRC - Universal design

An Aging & Disability Resource Consortium (ADRC) is a partnership between a county’s elder service organizations, known as Aging Service Access Points (ASAPs), and an area’s Independent Living Center serving people with disabilities. The ADRC enhances collaborations between elder and disability service providers, ensuring there’s no wrong door when an elder or person with a disability contacts one of our agencies for assistance and services. In addition to providing streamlined access to standard services provided by member agencies, the ADRC also offers Options Counseling, a free service designed to assist people in making informed choices about the services and supports they need to stay in, or return to, the community.

Boston Center for Independent Living is a proud member of two ADRCs: the Metro Boston ADRC and the Suffolk County ADRC.

ADRCs partner with community organizations, state agencies, and service providers to make sure that elders and people with disabilities have access to up-to-date information about resources in the community, and to make referrals between partner organizations smooth and worry-free for the people we serve.

If you represent an organization that works with people with disabilities or elders in the greater Boston Area, please contact Nassira Nicola, the Suffolk County ADRC Coordinator, to discuss how ADRC partnership can benefit the people you serve.
