Citizens for Long Term Care

A coalition of over 100 disability organizations working together to advocate national policy that ensures self-determination, independence, empowerment, integration and inclusion for people with disabilities into all aspects of society.

For the past two years, ANCOR has been working with an alliance of national organizations—Citizens for Long Term Care (CLTC). The effort, headed by former Senator David Durenberger (R-MN), is a collaboration of over sixty major national organizations representing all segments of the long term care (services and supports) debate. CTLC includes consumer groups, the disability community, care providers, insurers, unions, women's groups, and business interests. However, due to the broad range of organizations, Citizens for Long Term Care agreed early on that it was committed solely to raising the issue of long-term services, not proposing specific legislative solutions.

For more than 40 years CQL has been a leader in working with human service organizations and systems to continuously define, measure and improve the quality of life of all people. Services that are person-centered; that support each person to live his or her own life - to plan, to contribute, to participate, to choose; and to be respected and valued is WHAT REALLY MATTERS. CQL offers consultation, accreditation, training and certification services to organizations and systems that share our vision of dignity, opportunity and community for all people.

ANCOR and CQL have partnered to bring a 20% discount on CQL's Focus Forum, a unique consultative experience. Employees, people receiving supports, families, volunteers, community supporters and board members come together for 2 1/2 days of interactive dialogue, debate, and action planning about how their particular organization can leverage its strengths and assets to become more person-centered. The interactive group process builds a consensus on the principles and practices of person-centeredness.
