The Home Safe Program at IOA

Home Safe is a program intended to support the safety and housing stability of individuals within Adult Protective Services (APS), which supports victims of abuse and/or neglect who are either adults age 60+ or adults ages 18-59 who are living with disabilities.

Home Safe provides intensive case management and other supportive services to individuals experiencing or at imminent risk of homelessness due to elder or dependent adult abuse, neglect, self-neglect or financial exploitation.

How can you support the mission of Home Safe?

We are partnering with Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) across the Bay Area to find appropriate placements for vulnerable individuals needing RCFE levels of support.

What is the benefit to you?

By contracting with Institute on Aging, you may have access to a larger pool of client referrals, consistent reimbursement for services, and increased community exposure. We can also guide you through the process of connecting with additional support from state-funded insurance and waiver programs.

Interested in becoming a partner or have other questions?

Please contact: Lynda Connelly,, 650-255-7899


This program serving the community is funded by the City of San Francisco’s Department of Disability and Aging Services.

🌟 Pete's Incredible Journey: From Isolation to Independence 🌟

Meet Pete, a proud Californian who faced significant challenges after suffering heart attacks in 2008. He ended up in a Skilled Nursing Facility and lost his subsidized apartment, leading to 12 years of isolation and depression. But with the help of the Institute on Aging, Pete's life took a remarkable turn.

We specialize in transitioning individuals back into the community, and Pete's story is a shining example. With our support, he moved into a beautiful Senior Housing apartment in January. Today, he's thriving, decorating his apartment, and enjoying a newfound sense of independence. 🏑
