Finding and Connecting You to Services

Persons with disabilities and their caregivers are often frustrated by obstacles in their daily life that others will never face.

So many challenges, questions, forms, agencies, doors.
Where to start?

ADRC is your source for unbiased information about services available in Brown County.

 

We are here to listen to your story.

We want to learn about your hopes, dreams, and preferences.

Whether you are struggling, or caring for someone who is, we work with you to come up with a plan.

We search through available resources, put together options so you can make informed decisions and then help connect you to the services you choose.

This may include a benefits check-up, to uncover what you are eligible for.

Have you been denied benefits and need to appeal a decision?
We can help negotiate with public agencies, medical offices, or insurance companies to resolve problems.  Although our Benefit Specialists cannot help complete the disability application, they can explain the process and how appeals work if you are denied benefits.

Together we form a team working with you to put your plans in motion to help you live your best possible life.
