Our dining room and 13 studio apartment complex provide our seniors with the essential services to stay connected with their community
Meals and housing are essential to all humans, especially our seniors population, who are more frail and vulnerable than most. At Curry Senior Center we provide our seniors with meals 7-days a week; we assist them in finding housing or maintaining their housing, so they can age in place which is something we all deserve.
Under the City of San Francisco’s Public Health Orders, our Dining Room is currently closed, but hot breakfast and lunch are still available to go every day of the week.
Our dining room is more than just where meals are served, it’s where people gather to connect, share and learn.
Every day of the year more than 175 seniors receive breakfast and lunch at Curry Senior Center. At Curry Senior Center mealtime is not just about eating, but also socializing and getting out of their homes. And, just like at home, if someone is missing from the table, the absence is noticed. We serve seniors 60 years and older, and provide meal delivery for the homebound.
Housing is one of the most important forms of healthcare for our seniors.
Curry Senior Center owns and manages an adjacent 13 studio apartment building for seniors who were once homeless. Curry’s onsite resident manager and transitional case manager help residents achieve the highest level of self-sufficiency and independence they can to engage/re-engage with their community.
While many seniors have been housed temporarily during the coronavirus pandemic through the City’s Project Roomkey, Curry’s advocacy is needed to guarantee seniors transition to permanent housing and not a return to shelters or the streets. Curry also presses for additional subsidized housing for homeless seniors at nearby Single Room Occupancy hotels, such as The Cadillac, where residents receive health and wellness care from a Curry registered nurse.
