DAS Department of Disability and Aging Services

DAS coordinates services for older adults, veterans, people with disabilities, and their families to maximize safety, health, and independence.

Exciting news!  We have officially changed our name from the Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) to the Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS). This change reflects our continued commitment to serving the disability community in addition to older adults.
