In the fall of 2008, the Council on Aging received a grant from the North Carolina Office of Long Term Services and Supports as the lead agency for a three year collaborative effort in Chatham and Orange Counties.
What is a Community Resource Connection (CRC) for Aging and Disabilities?
A CRC is a coordinated system of information and access for all people seeking long-term support and services. It is designed to minimize confusion, enhance individual choices, and support informed decision making. The CRC is North Carolina's implementation of Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) grants from the Administration on Aging (AoA) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Chatham-Orange CRC Mission Statement
The joint Chatham-Orange Counties Community Resource Connections is a partnership providing a "no wrong door" approach for disabled and aging residents in these two counties. This consumer-driven, coordinated system of information and services is offered by the Chatham-Orange Community Resource Connections to minimize confusion, enhance individual choices, and strengthen individual decision-making pertaining to needs and supports.
