Aging and People with Disabilities

MISSION

The Department of Human Services Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) program assists seniors and people with disabilities of all ages to achieve well-being through opportunities for community living, employment, family support and services that promote independence, choice and dignity.

 

GOALS

 We help aging and people with disabilities:

  • remain as independent as possible;
  • sustain the supports needed to maintain quality lives in their home communities;
  • honor choices made by them about their own lives;
  • by promoting value-driven commitments in statute and policy; and
  • by partnering with advocacy groups, commissions and councils, local government partners, and community organizations.
