Since 1979, 30th Street Senior Center has offered an incredible array of enriching activities and essential services for diverse seniors 60+.
On Lok 30th Street Senior programs have served over 6,000 ethnically diverse seniors in San Francisco and surrounding areas. Most seniors are immigrants, and over 50% are isolated by their limited English proficiency. Enhancing its diversity, On Lok 30th Street Senior Center has many members of the underserved communities of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) seniors. The average age of an On Lok 30th Street senior is 78. Three quarters of 30th Street’s seniors are very low-income. Our mission is to foster the wellbeing of seniors from home to community by connecting them with each other and with culturally sensitive programs to achieve their potential.
Our programs include:
- Activities Program: providing a variety of activities per week that include a wealth of educational, health promotion, and creative opportunities that promote life-long learning, engagement and overall well -being.
