SUPPORT AT HOME

"We pave the way for adults with disabilities and aging adults to continue their journeys in the homes and lives they’ve already built. When obstacles stand in the way of those journeys, we’ll dismantle them together."

Support at Home (S@H) is the new program administered by the Institute on Aging (IOA) to provide home care vouchers to keep San Francisco adults with disabilities and older adults living safely in the community. The goal of S@H is to provide resources for needed home care that are not accessible through any other means due to affordability challenges.

The S@H program is funded by the City & County of San Francisco through the Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS). S@H is part of a city-wide effort to ensure San Francisco is an equitable, inclusive city for adults of all abilities to age in place with dignity.
