California In-Home Supportive Services Consumer Alliance
The California In-Home Supportive Services Consumer Alliance (CICA) is a statewide coalition of IHSS Advisory Committees and Governing Board members representing the consumer viewpoint on all IHSS issues at the local, state, and federal levels. This coalition works closely with IHSS providers to represent consumer issues and is the first of its kind in the state. The organization’s purpose is to provide statewide support and communication relative to IHSS program issues to Advisory Committee and Governing Board members, training materials, and updates on legislation and regulations. CICA also provides networking opportunities for advancing and supporting the mandates of the IHSS program, and they continue to make the consumer’s voice heard and recognized.
