"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 is the new program administered by 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 Support at Home is to serve adults living in the community by providing resources for needed home care that are not available through any other mechanisms due to financial challenges.

Support at Home promotes stable community living for adults with disabilities and older adults and the values of dignity and aging in place. Support at Home is funded by the City & County of San Francisco through the Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS).
