Sign up for Support at Home!

Support at Home has officially launched! Support at Home is a voucher program to help seniors and people with disabilities pay for home care so they can live safely in their homes. This is the program that SDA members fought hard to create and secure funding for — and it is now a reality!

If your income or savings is just barely too high for Medi-Cal and IHSS, but you can’t afford the out-of-pocket costs, this program is for you. To be eligible, you must be 18 or older, need assistance with 2 or more Activities of Daily Living, have less than $40,000 in assets (excluding a home and car) and less than $80,000 in income (for a single person). Please help spread the word!

To sign up, call Institute on Aging / IOA Connect at (415) 750-4111. Click here for more information.

SDA’s Priorities for 2017

Housing: Make it harder for landlords to evict seniors and people with disabilities for no reason.

Preserve Healthcare: Fight back against national plans to gut Medicaid, Medicare, and the Affordable Care Act.

Pedestrian Safety: Make San Francisco’s streets safer for people to get around.

Immigration: Support senior and disabled immigrants and act in solidarity with broader immigrant communities.

Trainings on Disability and Ableism

SDA is now offering Disability and Ableism training for community organizations, unions, government agencies, and businesses. Priced on a sliding scale, we offer a half-day or full day professional development opportunity for staff, board members, or volunteers to learn or refresh knowledge of systems that oppress people with disabilities. Through interactive presentations, role play, and games, this training includes disability history, cultural competency, ableism, useful communication skills, and more. One of the main goals is to explore our own experiences and views of disability. We hope to provoke deep conversation and create space for personal reflection, thereby giving you the skills to better serve your communities. For more information, please contact Jessica or Alice at 415-546-1333, jessica@sdaction.org or alice@sdaction.org.
