MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of the Carroll County Commission on Aging & Disabilities is to represent the Bureau of Aging & Disabilities to advocate for the needs of Carroll County’s older adults, individuals with disabilities and veterans to ensure they receive the highest level of service, assistance and programs.

The Carroll County Commission on Aging and Disabilities is a panel of at least 14 volunteer citizens appointed to rotating three-year terms by the Board of County Commissioners.

As such, many Commission members are active in related organizations at the local, state and national levels.
