Initiative: Community of Constituents in California

The Community of Constituents initiative is building a statewide movement to transform the system of care so that all Californians can age with dignity, choice and independence. More than 130 organizations, including community-based organizations, aging and disability service and advocacy coalitions, and consumer and provider organizations representing millions of Californians, are working at local, regional and statewide levels to improve the health care and supportive services for older adults and people with disabilities.
