The California Coalition on Family Caregiving (CaCFC) is a statewide coalition of family caregivers and support organizations convened by USC Family Caregiver Support Center/LACRC, Family Caregiver Alliance, and Los Angeles Alliance for Community Health and Aging, with funding from Community Catalyst and Archstone Foundation.
Our mission is to advocate for California policies and services that support diverse unpaid family caregivers and their care recipient(s).
Our vision is a robust caregiver support system that ensures caregiver wellbeing.
CaCFC amplifies the voices of family caregivers in California policymaking and furthers the goals of the CA Master Plan for Aging and the recommendations of the CA Taskforce on Family Caregiving.
The California Coalition on Family Caregiving started in 2022 with funding from Community Catalyst and Archstone Foundation.
CaCFC is a revitalization of the former California Task Force on Family Caregiving (2016-2019) which was established by Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 38 under, then Assemblymember, Cheryl Brown. The Task Force was a time limited collaborative of Assembly and Senate appointees who were tasked with examining issues relative to the challenges faced by family caregivers and opportunities to improve caregiver support, in order to write a report with policy recommendations to the Legislature.
With the launch of CaCFC, California now has a dedicated coalition of caregiver advocates, with open membership, who can work on achieving the recommendations of the California Task Force on Family Caregiving, the CA Master Plan for Aging, the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers (RAISE Act), and any new opportunities identified by caregiving coalition members.
The California Coalition on Family Caregiving receives administrative support from the USC Family Caregiver Support Center (USC FCSC) at the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA), and the Los Angeles Alliance for Community Health & Aging (LAACHA) with funding from the Archstone Foundation and Community Catalyst.
