CAHF and its members are also members of the American Health Care Association (AHCA).
CAHF's member facilities are divided into five regions and 19 chapters throughout the state. Each region elects its own officers (the chair of which serves on the Board of Directors) and each chapter is individually incorporated and elects its own officers.
The six conferences represent special interest groups within the membership to provide a forum for sharing ideas and concerns. Every member home or facility is assigned to a corresponding conference and may belong to more than one conference according to their facility type.
Each conference meets at the Spring and Summer Conference and at the Annual Convention. Officers are elected by the conference for a two-year term. The conference chairs are voting members of the Board of Directors.
CAHF conferences include:
- Behavioral Health
- Independent Owners/Operators
- Developmental Services
