Mission Statement

The Community Living Campaign will bring together an ever increasing number of individuals and organizations who pledge to support universal access to long term care services and support. This campaign will strive to build strong, committed communities that can be mobilized through direct action and democratic engagement. By undertaking these efforts, individuals, their families, and the wider community become more aware of their choices and can make informed decisions about their future.

Description

Far too many individuals end up in nursing homes or other institutions because community-based alternatives don't exist. Increasingly San Francisco is viewed as a generous, but not very progressive, city as thousands of its residents are unnecessarily institutionalized both in and out of county. In many ways, this campaign is really about giving seniors and adults with disabilities the right to decide where and how they will live their lives as they age and assuring that those institutions are more integrated and less isolated from their local community. More than that, it is about making San Francisco a better place for us all. It is time to mow down the barriers caused by disability, age, language, discrimination, or other causes. It is time for us to take what we have learned and sow the seeds of hope, celebrating and having a bit of fun along the way (because, after all, isn't that how a sense of community grows?)
