Who is SteppingStone?

The largest independent provider of Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) in San Francisco, SteppingStone plays a critical role in meeting the healthcare needs of San Francisco's most vulnerable seniors. Founded in 1983, our primary objective is to help seniors and adults with disabilities improve their health and quality of life, and maintain their independence in the community.

Our Program

SteppingStone (formerly North & South of Market Adult Day Health), is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that operates four Adult Day Health Care Centers that serve residents throughout San Francisco.

SteppingStone is licensed by the State Department of Health Services and is certified as a MediCal provider with the California Department of Aging. Since 1983, the organization has worked tirelessly to help seniors overcome the obstacles to independent living by providing a cost-effective, stimulating, and comprehensive set of services that that are all available under one roof.

At each of our four Centers in San Francisco, we provide an array of services including nursing and personal care; medical social work services; meals and nutritional services; medication management; physical, occupational, and speech therapies; and social and recreational activities. We also offer round trip transportation to and from our four Centers via our wheelchair accessible vans. Presently, we serve over 300 ethnically diverse seniors and adults with disabilities each month.

What sets SteppingStone's program apart from other local ADHC providers?

  1. the organization's long history and sole focus on providing ADHC programs to San Francisco's diverse senior population;
  2. the organization's innovative model of co-location with affordable senior housing developers through partnerships with Mercy Housing, TODCO, and St. Anthony Foundation ; and
  3. the organization's leadership role-- statewide and nationally-- as advocates for protecting and defending the rights of seniors.

SteppingStone’s unique program model is a wonderful, community-based alternative that helps prevent unnecessary institutional placement, and is designed to support the individual, the family, and our community in a supportive, multi-cultural environment. Are you ready to join our community?
