Californians for SSI (CA4SSI) is a coalition of anti-hunger, anti-poverty, aging, disability rights, and housing groups that have come together in response to an emergency situation in which over a million older Californians and people with disabilities are teetering on the edge of survival due to cuts made to make up for California’s budget shortfall in 2009.
