Consumer and Family Advisory Committee (CFAC)
What is the CFAC?
The Consumer and Family Advisory Committee (CFAC) gives a voice to consumers. It serves as a link between Sandhills Center, local health providers and the larger community.
During meetings, consumers and committee members discuss the services they receive and give advice to the Sandhills Center Board of Directors. By regularly reporting on the quality and reach of services, the CFAC can help make sure the public's needs are met.
With the CFAC's help, Sandhills Center can improve the quality of care its consumers receive. The CFAC also makes it easier for new consumers to get services.
CFAC members help:
- Alert Sandhills Center to gaps in service.
- Identify underserved populations.
- Recommend additional services.
- Report on service quality and delivery.
- Implement (and provide input on) state and local initiatives.
- Improve service quality.
Who can join the CFAC?
The CFAC is open to individuals who use Sandhills Center services and their family members. Sandhills Center employees or partners cannot join the CFAC.
The goal is to form a diverse group that can represent the community and its interests. Members are selected based on their conditions and experience to ensure that a wide range of interests are represented.
