The California Community Transitions (CCT) project, is California’s version of the national Money Follows the Person (MFP) Program. CCT helps adults who have been living in a skilled nursing facility for longer than 90 days and are covered by Medi-Cal transition back to their home or to community living with the help of a Transition Coordinator.
Our Transition Coordinators work with a myriad of community services to find resources, make connections and ensure a safe changeover to independent living. Make your own decisions about where and with whom to live. Explore your choices!
