AdvocacyACCA’s mission includes advocating at the local, state, and national levels for funding and legislation that align with the needs of older adults in our community.

Each year, ACCA speaks with our consumers, volunteers, supporters and the community about the issues that are important to them.

We work with aging advocates across the state and as part of specialized national groups to ensure our voice is heard about the issues that are important to us. We, in turn, share what we learn with our community.
