For over 65 years, guided by a mission to improve the quality of life for all seniors, regardless of economic status or cultural background, Sequoia Living has provided community service programs focused on physical, social, health and spiritual care.

Through our Community Service programs, the Sequoia Living mission extends into the greater Bay Area community, creating a lasting positive impact on older adults. Each year, our Community Service programs help thousands of Bay Area seniors maintain their health, live independently, and participate in educational and cultural activities.


Experience Corps Bay Area matches volunteer tutors aged 50 and over with struggling readers in grades K–3. By pairing young learners with experienced readers, we help to build confidence and trust at a critical time for children. Studies have shown that achieving literacy in these early years greatly influences whether a student stays in school and graduates.

The Resident Services Program serves low-income seniors and people with disabilities who reside in nineteen affordable housing properties in the Bay Area. Through nonprofit housing partnerships, Resident Services Coordinators provide on-site services, crisis management, housing sustainability support, and educational and health related activities.


Sequoia Living’s Intergenerational Program fosters social connections and reduces isolation between older adults and young people in San Francisco. We partner with schools and community organizations to offer engaging activities across 12 affordable housing communities. View the mini-docu series, “Welcome to My Kitchen,” which features seniors and Bay Area youth sharing their home-cooked dishes. This series is an opportunity to pass down recipes across generations.
