We all know that the most effective human services are provided through well-planned, community led and data-driven programs – whether non-profit or government-provided, that solve problems before a crisis exists.

AAFC leadership participated in a 2015-16 evaluation of our current county government-led senior services with suggested options for change and improvement. You can read that report here. AAFC will continue to follow and evaluate program changes and improvements over the next two years.
