What is CALA Advocacy?

CALA’s advocacy is focused on the representation of communities who provide person-centered care that offers choice and independence to residents.

CALA successfully represents its members before the California Legislature, Department of Social Services (DSS) Community Care Licensing Division, and other state entities involved in the development of senior living policy.
