“ASK” for Information about Senior Services in Union County

Union County, NJ – Union County residents seeking information about services available for senior adults age 60 and up can visit the Aging Service Kiosk (ASK) at five locations in May to speak with staff from the county’s Department of Human Services, Division on Aging.

Staff will be present at public libraries in Linden, Mountainside, Clark, Fanwood and Union.
