Mission

Advocates for Citizen Access is an informational resource for aging, under-employed and underserved populations. We strive to promote better health outcomes, to promote safe and affordable living environments, and to promote broader consumer awareness.

Promoting Better Health Outcomes and Living Environments: Through our core programs of Health and Wellness Options (HWO), Residential Living Alternatives (RLA) we provide liaison services for obtaining time-sensitive information and resources for individuals. By identifying adapted, downsized or senior-friendly residential settings, we tap a network of community service organizations, and local, state and federal agencies to identify appropriate options.

Increasing Consumer Awareness: For individuals with medical and health-related access or health insurance gaps, Advocates for Citizen Access assists in identifying options for those who experience limited access to information or services available to them.  Through community outreach events, tapping vast digital resources, and networking, assisted individuals will gain exposure to health and wellness alternatives.
