The Area Agency on Aging & Disabilities of Southwest Washington (AAADSW) and its Advisory Council invite all interested parties to attend the 2020-2023 Area Plan Public Meeting for Aging and Disability Services.

The meeting will occur in conjunction with the Klickitat County Senior Advisory Board meeting and will be on Friday, Sept. 6, from 11 a.m. to noon at Dallesport Community Center.

The 2020-2023 Area Plan is the primary tool used by AAADSW to guide the development of community-based supports and programs, and determine funding priorities, for older adults, adults with disabilities and family caregivers in its five-county planning and service area. Those counties include Clark, Cowlitz, Klickitat, Skamania, and Wahkiakum Counties.

A draft of the 2020-2023 Area Plan will be available at the meeting and online at www.HelpingElders.org Sept. 4.
