Ottawa County Senior Directory 

The Ottawa County Ttask force logoask Force on Aging published a focused resource guide in 2022 for seniors and their caregivers.  Thanks to the generous support of the Ottawa County Community Foundation, Ottawa County Job and Family Services, and local sponsors, the publication is designed to promote awareness about senior services available in our county.
