LivingADK, incorporated in 2001 as the Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st Century, Inc., is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that is focused on nurturing and supporting vibrant and sustainable year-round Adirondack communities. LivingADK achieves these goals by promoting economic development, social responsibility and a balance between commerce and nature.
In recent years, our focus has moved into the four pillars of community health. These are access to community housing options, broadband, healthcare, social services and an ecological stable economy. This focus has helped us on our mission of supporting the long-term community goals of the towns of the Western Central Adirondack Region.
