Duplin County NC

Senior Resource Center

 

Duplin County Services for the Aged began operating as a County Department in July, 1974, and the Nutrition Program began in September, 1975.  These two programs consolidated into one department in January, 1979.  In May, 2007, Duplin County Services for the Aged and Duplin County Public Transportation were consolidated into one department. In October, 2015, the combined departments were separated to operate as independent departments.

The primary objective of the agency is to serve as an advocate for persons sixty years of age and older to achieve a better quality of life.

Mission Statement: Improving the lives of Duplin County seniors through opportunities that encourage social interaction, enhance quality of life and support independence.
