Since the AAAPP's Senior Helpline occasionally receives calls from or about persons below 60 years of age and 2-1-1 has expanded service capability, we are pleased to coordinate with this excellent community resource. Likewise the Senior Helpline can assist 2-1-1 with technical expertise on their calls regarding senior resources.
