The ACCA’s Advanced Illness Care Program™ (ACCA-AICP) is a community-based, person-centered, care navigation intervention serving individuals with advanced illness and their caregivers in partnership with health, faith, and community organizations.

Care Navigators are trained members of the community who walk alongside participants providing trusted referrals, resources, and specially designed tools to empower them to achieve their identified goals. The intervention is holistic in its approach by focusing on participant needs within our Five Cornerstones: spiritual, health (physical and emotional), social, advance care planning, and caregiving. The program is currently in more than 42 churches in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties and is continuing to add new churches. The program also works in partnership with local health systems to provide our intervention services to their referred patients.
