Value of Collaboration
HAAA serves as a model of collaboration and partnership. HAAA has been dedicated to such a model of services delivery since the beginning and has no intention of changing this incredibly effective and efficient strategy.
HAAA has been an Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) since 2009/2010 when the first grants were awarded to Area Agencies on Aging in Iowa. In the past three years, HAAA has taken the ADRC from a two county pilot site to a regional service provider that is recognized as the gateway to long term services and supports for all people and all payers. HAAA ADRC has a solid reputation of partnership recruitment, building, and nurturing beginning with the first partnership developed at the inception of the grant.
