Consumer Advisory Council


The older adults and family caregivers that serve on the Consumer Advisory Council (CAC) provide input to inform the partnership's work based on first-hand experience with the long-term care system. The women and men involved in the CAC are dynamic, outspoken, and leaders in our community.

The CAC meets on a quarterly basis. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at the United Way of Greater Houston from 11:30am-1:00pm.

If you are interested or know of an older adult that would like to serve on this Council, please contact Josh Reynolds at  or 713-685-2437.
