M4A HAS MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION!
Welcome to the M4A website-built by us for you! Our goal as we developed this website was to provide YOU, our consumers, with a reliable and unbiased starting point for information on public and private options for long-term planning. Because M4A's consumers are a diverse group-ranging from Older Alabamians and caregivers to individuals living with disabilities-this website is also diverse in information.
From its inception, M4A contracted with county governments or nonprofits which were closely affiliated with county governments and formed to receive federal and state funds from M4A to administer many OAA Title III services such as meals, transportation, homemaker, chore, friendly visiting, and telephone reassurance.
