Partnering with New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS), the Mental Health Association of NYS (MHANYS), and the Coalition of Institutionalized Aged & Disabled (CIAD), SCAA formed the New York State Coalition for Adult Home Reform (NYSCAHR) to create a consumer voice to advocate for adult home reform in the wake of the New York Times series on adult homes by Cliff Levy.

Long Term Care Community Coalition

The Long Term Care Community Coalition is a non-profit organization that works to improve healthcare for the elderly and disabled. Formerly the Nursing Home Community Coalition of New York, LTCCC was formed as an ad hoc coalition in the 1970s on the heels of nursing home scandals in New York State. In 1982, because of a recognized need for a persistent watchdog and advocate for long-term care residents, LTCCC became a permanent coalition.
