Founded in 1975, Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.
In 2006, with support from the Archstone Foundation, the Down with Falls Coalition began organizing various activities to bring health professionals and service providers together to address falls. Early activities included collecting an older adult and service provider needs assessment and the development of a strategic plan. The Coalition currently focuses on community and health professional education through the Speakers Bureau.
The Coalition meets quarterly (January, April, July, and October) to learn more about fall risk reduction from industry professionals and to discuss Coalition activities.
