Support at Home is the new pilot program administered by Institute on Aging (IOA) to provide home care vouchers to keep San Francisco adults with disabilities and seniors living safely in the community. The goal of Support at Home is to serve individuals who are not eligible for other subsidized home care programs, like Medi-Cal In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS), due to income/resource limits or other program requirements.
Support at Home promotes stable community living for adults with disabilities and seniors 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 Aging & Adult Services.
Please call IOA at 415.750.4111 for questions regarding eligibility criteria or to make a referral.
