We’re Proud of Our Years

Missoula Aging Services is the designated Area Agency on Aging for Missoula and Ravalli Counties. Established in 1982 by the Missoula County Commissioners with a modest budget of $279,000 and a staff of five, we began by providing a small congregate meal program, Meals on Wheels, RSVP (Volunteer Program) and the Foster Grandparent Program. In 2006, the agency became an Aging and Disability Resource Center to ensure efficient use of resources in serving adults of all ages with disabilities. Thirty-five years later, we stand strong with a staff of 56 and a budget of more than $4 million. Last year we served more than 30,000 individuals. We are proud of our years and thankful for those who have made our many accomplishments possible.

Missoula County
