For Humboldt and Del Norte counties’ seniors and their families, caregivers and service providers, the Senior Information & Assistance (I & A) program is the recognized gateway for information that can provide critical help and support to those in need. Professional Resource Specialists are expert in the development and delivery of current, relevant, timely and useful information. Information is provided through face-to-face interviews, telephone interviews, appointments or unscheduled walk-in consultations. In these meetings, specialists assess individual and family needs and organize referrals to appropriate resources.

Whether providing information to family members, ensuring access to emergency food and electricity for frail seniors, collaborating with other organizations to combat senior abuse and fraud, or partnering with federal, state and local agencies to ensure that isolated seniors maintain vital connections to their community, the I & A program remains committed to supporting the health, safety and independence of the seniors of Humboldt and Del Norte counties.

2017 Senior Farmers MarketThe Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is a federally funded program which provides low-income seniors (age 60+) with one check booklet that can be used to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, cut herbs, and honey at Certified Farmers’ Markets (CFM).

For the 2017 season, A1AA has partnered with several local organizations in Humboldt and Del Norte counties in providing the check booklets to the community. No check booklets will be distributed at the A1AA office.
