Reliable Resources Matter

Reliable resources matter, especially in time-sensitive circumstances. Lack of reliable information, or overload related to health care and residential options can create confusion and interfere with making crucial decisions. Advocates for Citizen Access is dedicated to promoting access to digestible, trusted resource information for aging and underserved populations, and advocating for options that meet their health care and residential living needs.

Our Core Programs

Health Care & Wellness

Through community engagement, information sharing and direct outreach, Advocates for Citizen Access promotes public health interventions aimed at improving outcomes for vulnerable populations. We work to connect individuals with access to affordable health care that meets their needs, and advocate for addressing social determinants of health that impact overall health outcomes.

Residential Living Options & Alternatives

Our liaisons assist individuals in accessing new resources when making decisions on adapted residential living environments and other changing circumstances.   Safety or mobility-adapted improvements, in-home aid, decluttering strategies, downsizing and assisted searches for aging such as independent or assisted living environments. When identifying adapted or senior-friendly residential settings, we utilize into a network of community service organizations, and local, state and federal agencies to identify appropriate options.
