The Public Authority, through its staff and Advisory Committee, supports and advocates for public policy that maintains and improves services that help seniors and people with disabilities live safe, healthy, independent lives by engaging in efforts to influence and educate legislators, the public and public institutions. Our advocacy includes public education, meeting and communicating with legislators and government officials, providing stories and information to the media, mailings, attending and testifying at hearings, and participating with the advocacy efforts of other organizations.
The Public Authority for IHSS in Alameda County has an Advisory Committee, whose members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Committee meetings are open to the public. View the Advisory Committee page to find out more about its role, scheduled meetings, agendas, minutes, and members.
