Our Participation in the Community of Constituents

The Senior Services Coalition is part of The SCAN Foundation’s Community of Constituents Initiative, building a statewide movement to transform the system of care so that all Californians can age with dignity, choice and independence.

Since 2011, SSC has been one of TSF’s Regional Coalitions grantees – participating in monthly conference calls, convening quarterly, sharing best practices in coalition-building and creating connections and a common understanding of state and federal policy. The purpose of this page is to share the experience and benefits with you.

December 22, 2016 – Our partners at the California Collaborative for Long Term Services and Supports have launched a blog: We Speak Policy. It’s well worth following.
