HAT is a coalition of seniors, people with disabilities, caregivers and community agencies working together to advocate for increases and expansion of homecare services and affordable, supportive housing and improvements to discharge planning. We use theater, song, storytelling and other popular education and participatory research models to raise awareness of the growing need for quality services and housing and the important role they play in our community.
CRCL (pronounced “crackle”) helps seniors and people with disabilities navigate the complex web of home and community-based support services that can keep people living at home. CRCL works with people to get the services they need, know their rights, and resolve grievances.
We empower seniors and people with disabilities to take action in their communities. Utilizing presentations, discussions, and popular education, we train seniors and people with disabilities to effectively access vital community resources and to exercise their rights. Senior and Disability Survival School brings useful and accessible information to people with disabilities and seniors throughout San Francisco. Senior and Disability University trains people on community organizing and on issues such as Social Security, health care, housing, and pedestrian safety.
Beginning and intermediate classes are offered to seniors and people with disabilities who want to learn how to use a personal computer. We start with how to turn it on and why you might want to use one, and we lead people through word processing, internet, email, and social media.
The SDA Housing Action Collaborative (SHAC) is a group of tenants, homeowners, community advocates, and representatives from non-profit and government agencies, all dedicated to improving housing opportunities for seniors and people with disabilities. We work together to preserve and create quality, affordable, accessible housing in San Francisco, by organizing to win change!
