Welcome to the Land-of-Sky Community Resource Connections for Aging and Disabilites!

During the summer of 2011, the Land-of-Sky Community Resource Connections (CRC) Project became operational for all people with disabilities, elders and family members seeking information and assistance about long-term services and supports in the community.

The Land-of-Sky CRC is part of a federal and state initiative to reduce the confusion that many have experienced in trying to find services, often resulting in making multiple telephone calls before finding help. Through formal agreements made with key aging and disability partners throughout Buncombe, Henderson, Madison and Transylvania Counties, the Land-of-Sky CRC offers a streamlined approach to accessing services.

Core functions of the CRC include:

• Information and Assistance
• Options Counseling
• Streamlined Access to services and public funding
• Transitions partnership with hospitals and nursing facilities
• Quality assurance and evaluation

How do people contact the CRC? There is more than one way to access the system. If someone does not know where to start, a call to United Way's 2-1-1 system will result in an appropriate, personalized transfer to the best agency for the caller. Callers may also contact their local agency directly. Key organizations in the collaboration include: The Council on Aging of Buncombe County, The Council on Aging for Henderson County, Madison County Department of Community Services, Western Highlands ACCESS, and Disability Partners.
