For over 40 years, HCA has been a leading state and federal advocate for quality, community-based care. We represent hundreds of dedicated organizations and their thousands of home and community-based staff. We’re a resource for information, providing policy and regulatory expertise, professional development, education and training opportunities to support you.

HCA represents the full continuum of home and community-based organizations. Our member culture uniquely operates from a broad appreciation and reflection of the value, common cause and mutual impact of each component of our community-based long term care system.
