The Michigan Alliance for Person-Centered Communities (MAPCC) is a coalition of provider associations, government agencies, workforce development organizations, advocacy groups, educational institutions, and long-term care institutions and organizations including residential care, hospice, and home care. Cean Eppelheimer is one of MAPCC’s co-chairs, and PHI staff have been actively engaged in building the organization.
The Alliance champions culture change and a person-centered approach within all long-term supports and services through the sharing of information on culture change models and practices, workforce development issues, best practice sharing, and networking opportunities to assist and support organizational transformation. MAPCC is one of 36 state coalitions recognized by the Pioneer network across the country.
Through partnership and shared learning, MAPCC promotes an array of adult long-term supports and services that create strong communities deeply rooted in dignity and respect, rich with relationships and opportunities for self-determination and personal growth for all.
