On Lok is a family of community-based, not-for-profit organizations whose mission is to enable seniors to maintain a quality of life that lets them live in their communities where they can lead independent, active lives for as long as possible.
30th Street Senior Center is part of the On Lok organization. It provides health and wellness programs, social interaction, nutritious meals, educational opportunities,
information and assistance, and case management services through
our seven programs for over 5,000 of San Francisco’s seniors.
The Healthier Living Program and DEEP are six-week workshops focused on Chronic Disease Self-Management and Diabetes Empowerment Education. They are available at no cost to the community in a variety of languages (English, Spanish, Russian, Tagalog, Chinese and Korean) at various centers throughout San Francisco. Voluntary Contributions are welcomed.
