County of Marin Health and Human Services

Area Agency on Aging

Marin County Aging and Adult Services (AAS) acts as the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for Marin County, under a framework and funding put forth in the Older Americans and Older Californians Acts. The AAA is the leading planner, administrator, and funder of services for persons over 60 and family caregivers in Marin County. View the Area Plan here.

  • Assisted Transportation
