Serving People

Providing and coordinating services to help seniors maintain independence and thrive

The AAA is part of a nationwide network on aging under the direction of the U.S. Administration for Community Living and is funded through the Alabama Department of Senior Services.

The primary responsibility of the AAA to our five-county service area is to plan and carry out a comprehensive, coordinated service delivery system to address the needs of people over 60, and help them maintain their independence. We serve DeKalb, Jackson, Limestone, Madison, and Marshall counties. 

Alabama Agency of Regional Councils

The mission of the AARC is “to expand and strengthen the capabilities of Regional Councils to serve local governments and the citizens of Alabama.” The AARC promotes this mission through a number of activities. Once a year, the directors of the regional councils meet in a workshop forum to identify issues affecting all of the regions and to formulate objectives that enhance and promote economic, community and social improvements for the citizens in their regions, and collectively, for the citizens of the State of Alabama.
