Community Care Settings Program

Since 2014, CCSP has helped over 190 aging and disabled people transition from long-term care facilities back into their own homes. By coordinating a wide range of resources – such as housing, medical, behavioral health, social, home-health, adult day care and transportation services – CCSP empowers participants to be fully engaged community members.

HPSM’s Program Partners

HPSM partners with San Francisco’s Institute on Aging (IOA) and the housing agency Brilliant Corners to provide eligible CCSP participants with the support they need to live independently.

  1. Brilliant Corners helps people find homes that best fit their situations
  2. IOA then manages their care
  3. HPSM works with IOA to make sure members have the resources they need to remain stable and live independently as active members of the community


Currently, CCSP is only available on a limited basis to members who meet specific criteria and are invited to participate by HPSM or IOA. HPSM plans to roll the most successful components of CSSP out more widely in the near future. Then more older and disabled adults, and their families, can benefit as well.
