Openhouse + On Lok Community Day Services

Senior services designed with and for the LBGTQ community

On Lok and Openhouse, a leading provider of LGBTQ senior services, have joined forces to co-design the nation's first community-based adult day program for and with the LGBTQ community, launching in late 2020.

Openhouse + On Lok Community Day Services (Community Day) involved LGBTQ seniors from the very beginning to co-design a multi-faceted program, bringing much-needed services to San Francisco’s growing LGBTQ+ community.

Coming soon: Not your typical center

Community Day will offer a safe and life-affirming space where you you can be yourself, engage with your community, and find services to maintain your wellness and empower your independence.

Openhouse + On Lok Community Day will offer:


Enjoy daily hot and tasty midday meals, snacks, and refreshments.


Staff will provide you with coordinated services and help with your personal care and reminders.


Express yourself with many fun LGBTQ-themed activities to help you stay socially engaged.


Based on need, transportation will be coordinated or provided from you home to the program, and back.

Is Community Day right for me?

  • Are you age 55 or older?

  • Would you benefit from assistance with your daily activities?

  • Would you benefit from a supportive environment?

  • Do you need help with some personal care?
