Fortner, Carolyn
Executive Director

Middle Alabama Area Agency on Aging (M4A) was designated, pursuant to the Older Americans Act (OAA), by Governor Guy Hunt as the Area Agency on Aging for Region 3 in the Birmingham Regional Planning District in 1989.

The counties served are Blount, Chilton, Shelby, St.Clair and Walker counties.

The multi-jurisdictional agreement further empowered M4A to take all actions necessary to fulfill the requirements of the Older Americans Act and to address the concerns facing aging individuals in the M4A service area.


How We Serve

M4A’s mission is to help older individuals and persons with disabilities access information, assistance, and resources that will empower them to self-advocate, live independently, and enjoy the highest quality of life.

Who We Serve

M4A primarily services people in our 5 counties that are over the age of 60, or who have a disability, and their caregivers. Our goal is to enhance the lives of people we serve.

Where We Serve

We are currently located in Blount, Chilton, Shelby, St. Clair, and Walker County.
