Founded in 1958, Sequoia Living is a Bay Area nonprofit organization that provides older adults from all economic backgrounds with stimulating, joyful living environments and services that enrich their lives. Our mission is to provide homes and services for healthy and joyful aging. Through our diverse network of Life Plan communities, affordable housing communities, and community service programs, our team of extraordinary people seeks to create everyday experiences that bring joy and promote lifelong growth.

We believe every day is an opportunity to grow stronger, wiser, and more connected to the people and the world around us. We believe our job is to help make every day a joyful experience for residents, program participants, community members, and each other. We believe in creating an inclusive culture where everyone feels seen, heard, and respected for who they are.

We believe every day should include at least a little fun — however you choose to define it.

Sequoia Living’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) Statement

Our promise is to always be a safe place for people to be who they are.

To our coworkers, residents, customers, business partners, and all marginalized and underrepresented communities — we see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.

Racism, inequality, and social injustice must end. Sequoia Living is committed to doing our part to help society meet that goal.

How DEIB aligns with our mission

Sequoia Living’s mission is to provide homes and services for healthy and joyful aging for people of all cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, abilities, faiths, identities, backgrounds, and walks of life. While we may be a small voice in a very big conversation, we will step up, show up, and speak up.

We have long lived the values of inclusion. We will continue to listen, learn, and work together to end the prejudices that have had such devastating effects on society as well as the people we see each day in our communities and service locations. Whether they are a resident, a staff member, a program participant, a contractor, or a customer, everyone is valued. Every person who walks through our doors enriches us.

They are family.

They are friends.

They are part of our community.

They make us better.

YOU make us better.
