The Aging Disability Resource Center of Tarrant County is a collaborative project staffed by established community service agencies and groups. Our intent is to change the face of human services in Tarrant County to respond more fully in linking citizens to services and programs.
The ADRC of Tarrant County helps people who are aging or have a disability, their families and caregivers, in understanding their options and successfully connecting with the services and supports they need.
Thank you for visiting our website. We continue to add useful links to valuable resources for seniors and those with disabilities. The Aging & Disability Resource Center of Tarrant County has an extensive library of information for your community use; pamphlets, books, videos, computers for internet searches, etc. Please feel free to stop by the ADRC for more information or to visit with a trained ADRC Resource Coach.
