In November 2004, Mayor Gavin Newsom announced the appointment of the Long Term Care Coordinating Council to provide policy guidance to the Mayor's Office.

The Long Term Care Coordinating Council (LTCCC) is charged to: (1) advise, implement, and monitor community-based long term care planning in San Francisco; and (2) facilitate the improved coordination of home, community-based, and institutional services for older adults and adults with disabilities.  It is the single body in San Francisco that evaluates all issues related to improving community-based long term care and supportive services.

The LTCCC has 40 membership slots.  Membership categories were created to ensure representation from a variety of consumers, advocates, and service providers (non-profit and public).  The Mayor appoints people to fill 32 slots, which represent non-profit service provider organizations, consumers, and advocates.  The additional 8 slots represent City and County departments including: Human Services, Aging and Adult Services, Public Health (two slots), Mayor's Office on Disability, Mayor's Office of Housing, San Francisco Housing Authority, and the Municipal Railway.

Current List of Members of the Long Term Care Coordinating Council
The Council is currently accepting nominations for positions indicated as VACANT.  Please contact Melissa McGee at Melissa.mcgee@sfgov.org for further information.

The LTCCC evaluates how service delivery systems interact to serve people, and recommends ways to improve service coordination and system interaction.  Workgroups responsible for carrying out the activities in the plan provide periodic progress reports through presentations to the LTCCC.
