Since 2007, the Community Living Campaign (CLC) has been charting a new path for what it means to age in community in San Francisco. CLC’s mission is to ensure older adults and adults with disabilities can age and thrive in their own homes and neighborhoods. To accomplish this mission, CLC promotes neighborhood-based Community Networks to bring people and services together. CLC also spearheads citywide initiatives to promote digital access and employment opportunities, and advocates on selected age and disability-related issues that are too big for any individuals, organizations, or neighborhoods to solve alone.
CLC is participant-focused and driven, able to shift quickly to meet evolving needs on both a neighborhood and larger systemic level. We bring a positive, kind, and can-do spirit to strengthening our communities through the power of older adults and people with disabilities.
To build on recent growth and success, CLC is adding to its executive team and seeks a strong candidate to fill a new position, Director of Neighborhood Networks.
