The Adult & Aging Network (AAN) was created in 1999 as an advisory body to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors on issues relating to older adults and people with disabilities. The Network was formed to coordinate existing services and strategically determine priority needs and concerns in the areas of human services, health, education, safety and community access. AAN improves the lives of seniors and adults with disabilities in Santa Barbara County by facilitating connection, collaboration, education and advocacy among stakeholders and service providers.
