About FTAAAD
The First Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability


FTAAAD is part of a nationwide system of agencies that were created as a result of the 1973 amendments to the Older Americans Act of 1965. 

Our mission is to assist older Tennesseans and adults with disabilities in Northeast Tennessee with information and services that promote quality of life and independence.

Tax-deductible donations to FTAAAD programs are always gratefully accepted through the FTDD Foundation.

CAN I CALL ON SOMEONE ELSE'S BEHALF?
Sure!  It is important to keep in mind we can only provide services to individuals that want and agree to these services.  Specific information is needed to screen individuals for our programs, so it is helpful for us to have the contact information of the person, or someone else that can provide the needed information. CLICK HERE to learn more.

CAN I VOLUNTEER WITH FTAAAD?
Several of our FTAAAD programs operate with the generous assistance of screened and trained community volunteers. CLICK HERE to learn more.

CAN I DONATE TO FTAAAD PROGRAMS?
State and federal funding for these programs is limited, resulting in long waiting lists for services and missed opportunities for FTDD to make a greater impact on the residents of the region. To mitigate these funding limitations, the FTDD Foundation,  the nonprofit 501(c)3 arm of the Development District, was created  to pursue private fundraising and grant awards that allow FTDD to serve greater numbers of Northeast Tennesseans in need. CLICK HERE to learn more.
