Mission and Work

Mission

The COMMUNITY LIVING CAMPAIGN uses the power of relationships to reduce isolation and to eliminate barriers to aging in community. We do this by strengthening networks of support for individuals and across neighborhoods - networks that promote acts of kindness and a spirit of justice. We teach people how technology and social media are new tools to help individuals and organizations better reach their goals.

Program 1

$420k annual program spend • Neighborhood Networks Community Connectors have organized neighbors in the Bayview, Cayuga, Merced Extension Triangle, Miraloma Park, OMI (Ocean View Heights-Ingleside), Parkmerced, and St. Francis Square/Western Addition neighborhoods. These networks reweave communities of support focusing on food delivery, home repairs, healthy aging, breast cancer support, advocacy, and social activities. Working together with 125 neighborhood volunteers and the support of numerous community partners this year, we helped create connections for over 600 San Francisco neighbors.Neighborhood Networks. Every neighborhood finds its own mix of activities and interests to bring people together and build caring communities. In the past year, we coordinated community-building activities such as senior exercise classes, walking groups, and community forums. Neighbors also helped each other with countless little tasks, pitching in where needed. Connector network participants feel healthier and more connected: 81% feel healthier, 69% have an easier time taking care of themselves, 81% feel more likely to be able to stay in their home, and 100% know more people and more about community services.Grocery Networks. In the past year, neighbors delivered over 9,000 bags of produce and healthy foods, made over 7,800 visits, and 890 hours of phone calls and assistance to people who can't stand in line at local food pantries. Along with needed groceries, recipients are more connected and have gotten help with everything from home safety improvements to connections to more formal in-home care.

Program 2

$249k annual program spend • Computer Training & AccessDigital Literacy and Internet Access. CLC is a leader in helping seniors use technology and social media. Through the City's SF Connected program, we offer free workshops and drop-in computer tutoring at local senior and community centers. These classes create friendships and help our neighbors connect with friends and family, as well as healthcare, financial, government, and other information that is rapidly moving online.In the past year, our Trainers and volunteers provided over 3,750 hours of computer training to almost 650 low-income seniors and people with disabilities. Together with the Department of Aging and Adult Services and other community agencies, we are narrowing the digital divide.We bring together neighbors, community organizations, academics, businesses, and City agencies to address issues that are too complex for any of us to solve alone. As part of our commitment to increasing technology access, we help lead and support the SF Tech Council, which brings together non profits, government, businesses, and academics to share ideas, increase resources, and develop ways to work together to close the digital divide.Francis Goldsmith Vision & Hearing Initiative. To counter the isolating effects of hearing and vision loss, CLC includes best communication practices and assistive technologies into all of our programs. Our Connectors and Trainers travel with communication tool kits filled with assistive devices to help keep all participants engaged. In the past year, our Trainers helped over 600 computer students with vision and/or hearing disabilities. And provided adult day services centers and low-income seniors with approximately $7,000 of assistive devices.

Program 3

$177k annual program spend • Senior & Disability Employment and EmpowermentSF ReServe Employment: CLCs newest initiative adapts ReServe, a national program that matches seniors and adults with disabilities (ReServists) with paid service opportunities in their community. ReServists secure meaningful, part-time work while providing significant help to local non-profits and the communities they serve. Our staff assist potential ReServists with applications, developing a resume, and defining interests to facilitate a great match. In past year, over 60 people completed applications and 37 were placed at community organizations. To date, the program has paid for almost 12,500 hours of ReServist expertise at CLC and 18 Partner organizations.Connections for Healthy Aging Workshops: COMMUNITY LIVING CAMPAIGN trainers provide workshops that helps participants explore issues around aging, identify and strengthen networks of support, and advocate for themselves and others.During the past year, we empowered over 250 participants through Empowered Elder trainings, including several in Spanish. 99% of participants reported that they are better informed and more able to advocate for themselves and others. 81% feel more engaged in their community. 76% feel less isolated.
