In Pennsylvania, ADRC is known as the Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources, commonly referred to as the PA Link. It is designed to be a cross-age system network of partner agencies who collaborate to service individuals who need long term services and supports. The coordinated network of partners allows a consumer to initiate contact with any Link partner and access needed information, assistance, and resources. The "no wrong door" approach attempts to minimize duplication of efforts by both consumer and provider. Link partners assist the following populations, regardless of income: adults age 60+, individuals living with any type of disability, persons living with behavioral health or substance abuse issues, and the caregivers and family members of these populations.
Our PA Link Network in Lehigh and Northampton counties consists of partners and an advisory/oversight committee.
The partners provide information and assistance services to the target populations and both private pay and publicly funded individuals; promote the PA Link network; and foster a collaborative relationship with other agencies in Lehigh and Northampton County that provide supportive services to the target populations.
PA Link Advisory/Oversight Committee:
Any partner who is interested in participating on the advisory/oversight committee should contact Kim Melusky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The community partners consist of agencies and organizations that work with housing issues, transportation, employment, county government, and agencies and organizations that serve people with disabilities that overlap with the targeted populations. These partners will participate in meetings and training sessions, both as a participant and as a trainer, to collaborate about available programs and services for the community.
