IOA’s Community Living Fund is a short-term, intensive care management program designed to helps lower-income San Francisco County residents transition out of hospitals and care facilities so they can live independently. The CLF helps aging adults and people living with disabilities transition out of care facilities if they do not belong there, or do not wish to be there.
CLF assists individuals by connecting them to medical and psychosocial services that will support independent living. We serve as the guiding hand within an extended network of programs and services, helping individuals find secure living arrangements, connecting them to medical and psychosocial services to support independent living and helping them manage their care.
IOA’s Community Living Fund also advocates for individuals who are willing and able to continue living in the community, but who are at risk of institutionalization. Our staff works to ensure that individuals are connected to all available community resources, stable housing, and appropriate healthcare services to support their ability to continue living at home safely…including proper medical equipment.
Potential clients must first undergo an eligibility screening process through the Department of Aging and Adult Services. Afterwards, our care managers will assess client’s needs, develop a service plan, and then work to maintain or return them to a safe, stable, independent way of life.
