About On Lok

Mission Statement

To maintain and develop health care models for the well-being and dignity of the elderly and chronically ill through education, advocacy, innovation in services and financing, while advocating for quality and affordable care.

On Lok, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization founded in the early 1970’s by a group of citizens concerned about the plight of elders and the lack of long term options in the community.  Now, several decades later, On Lok, Inc. serves seniors in the community through:

  • On Lok Lifeways – a comprehensive health plan that provides long-term care for eligible seniors living in San Francisco, Fremont, Newark, Union City or Santa Clara County (not including Gilroy, Morgan Hill or San Martin). The program offers full medical care and support services with the goal of helping seniors live at home and in the community for as long as possible.  For more information about On Lok Lifeways, click here.
  • 30th Street Senior Center – the largest multi-purpose senior center in San Francisco offering a broad range of programs including a senior center, nutrition and congregate meals, home delivered meals and bilingual case management.  To learn more about these services, click here.
  • On Lok Intergenerational Program – a program that brings together On Lok Lifeways members and children from neighboring childcare centers and elementary schools.  To learn more about this program, click here.
  • Housing – three buildings with various types of residential units for older adults.  To learn more about On Lok Housing, click here.
