Do you think San Francisco should spend more money on services to help older adults and adults with disabilities age at home?
We have an opportunity to encourage Mayor London Breed and the Board of Supervisors to restore the annual funding for those services, through the Dignity Fund, in the upcoming budget.
Show your support by signing the letter we sent them by clicking here.
During the pandemic, the city suspended its annual $3 million budget allocation to the Dignity Fund. That was especially challenging for the people the fund helps: older adults and people with disabilities.
They’re the people most likely to have found themselves trapped in their homes and isolated. They’re more likely to be unable to access regular health care or transportation to medical appointments. We’ve seen increased food insecurity as well.
How You Can Help
But now, with state and federal funding, the city has the ability to restore funding for these services. Here’s the Dignity Fund Coalition Sign-on Letter to Restore the Promise of the Dignity Fund.
You can join the fight by co-signing the letter to the Mayor and the Supervisors here, showing you agree that funding should be restored.
Alternatively, call or email your district Supervisor and tell them you want them to restore the annual $3 million allocation to the Dignity Fund. Click here to find out how to reach your supervisor.
