Openhouse enables San Francisco Bay Area LGBT seniors to overcome the unique challenges they face as they age by providing housing, direct services and community programs.  As a result, we have reduced isolation and empowered LGBT seniors to improve their overall health, well-being and economic security.


  • Live in safe and stable housing that is affordable to them.
  • Be welcomed and treated appropriately by housing, social service and healthcare providers throughout each stage of life across the entire continuum of care.
  • Be engaged with and supported by communities of their choice.

Join us in creating a vibrant, health and secure future for LGBT seniors in San Francisco and the Bay Area!

 What We Do:

Case Management

The Openhouse case management program offers a comprehensive look at the needs of LGBT older adults, adults with disabilities, and/or  caregivers to ensure high-quality holistic care, coordination of services, and follow-through, while maintaining the dignity of each individual and addressing his/her unique needs.

Have you been discharged from the hospital and need in-home support? Experiencing a life transition and feeling overwhelmed about what to do next? Are you struggling with a challenging situation and don’t know where to turn to for help? You don’t have to figure it out on your own. Contact Openhouse’s case management program where you’ll receive compassionate support and expert care navigation and coordination services.
