Our Mission

CHAPCA is a membership association that promotes and strengthens the delivery of palliative and hospice care for terminally ill patients and their families through education and advocacy



Welcome to the California Hospice and Palliative Care Association

The California Hospice and Palliative Care Association advocates for those facing life-threatening illnesses. We provide technical resources to our members, advocate on and monitor legislative and regulatory activities, provide continuing education to providers on end-of-life issues and collaborate with other organizations that share an interest in end-of-life care. We serve nearly 200 hospice providers and their staff in California and Nevada.

We partner with the California Hospice Foundation, to offer public and professional educational programs and materials to enhance understanding and availability of hospice and palliative care.
