Access the Statewide Helpline Database
If you would like to access the statewide online database of Aging And Disability Resource Centers resources, you can find the link below.
PLEASE NOTE: This database includes resources from across the state of Florida. Please begin your search by filtering for your zip code, as this will ensure that you are not directed to resources outside of your service area. Beyond using your zip code as a filter, the broader you make your search, the more likely you will be to pull up all relevant results. If you have difficulty finding applicable resources, you can always call the Helpline at +1-800-963-5337 to assist you in finding the resources that are right for you and your loved ones.
You can access the statewide database here.
Get listed in the Helpline Database
The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is a federally funded program at the Area Agency on Aging that provides information and referral/assistance services to seniors, adults with disabilities, and caregivers. The goal of the ADRC is to help these consumers remain independent and understand/navigate the complex web of services available to them.
Those who call the ADRC Helpline (formerly the Senior Helpline) are referred to government-funded programs, not-for-profit organizations, and for-profit businesses that are listed in the statewide computer database used by the 11 Helplines in Florida. The Helpline consistently receives over 20,000 calls/contacts per year. Out-of-state family and friends also use the Area Agency’s website to locate resources and to email the Helpline about community resources.
