Designing and building the future of home- and community-based care

CICOA is bringing innovative solutions to market that improve quality of life for older adults, people with disabilities and family caregivers and that build capacity and efficiency for the organizations that serve them.

Our Venture Studio, a model for intrapreneurship and corporate innovation, walks alongside staff and collaborative partners to ideate, prototype and launch new solutions to better meet the needs of the vulnerable populations we serve.

We leverage almost 50 years’ experience in the elderly and disability service industry with today’s vision to design and build the future of home and community-based care.

CICOA is committed to creating a more just and inclusive world by designing products and services by and for those not typically represented by venture capital initiatives.
