Remember! Vote YES on Prop I


We Did It!

Dr. George W. Davis Senior Residence is finally leased up!

What a great way to kick off the holiday season with a Halloween party celebrating all residents who have finally signed their lease to move in to the new Dr. George W. Davis Senior Residence! We would like to thank all of the hardworking and dedicated staff and community partners for their tireless effort, energy, hard work, and long hours to hang in there with us over this last year to ensure seniors who applied had everything that they needed to move into their new home.


The Dignity Fund – Yes on I

bss-2

Yes Vote on Prop I will create the Dignity Fund in the San Francisco budget, which will 1) stabilize funding for today’s services and support for seniors, veterans, adults with disabilities and adults living with chronic and life-threatening health conditions and; 2) establish a fund that will grow with the City’s discretionary revenues.

  • Beginning in 2017-2018, the Dignity Fund will grow by $9 million to $41 million – a 28% increase over 2015-2016.
  • In the subsequent 9 years, it will grow by an additional $3 million in each year before switching to growth tied to increases in the City’s revenue sources.

By 2036-37, based on anticipated General Fund revenue growth, annual spending is projected to be $111 million.


Words of Gratitude

bss-3“This is the first time in a long time,” said one of the new residents living at Dr. George W. Davis Senior Residence. Before their move, many seniors were couch surfing with friends and families, living in dilapidated housing, or surviving in the streets. Many of them now living at the new Dr. George W. Davis Senior Residence have a shared sense of pride and gratitude to not only have their own brand new apartment, but also be apart of fulfilling Dr. Davis’ dream. A state-of-the-art senior center connected to housing for long-term residents of San Francisco and the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood. Bayview Senior Services and the residents of the new Dr. George W. Davis Senior Center would like to thank every individual who donated to the Moving On Up Fund. YOU made a special difference in the lives of the new residents by providing funds to buy new beds, dressers, dining tables, love seats and other essentials that make their unit a home.

Seniors who moved into the new residence were stunned when they found out that they would also receive a brand new laptop for free! Many had never had one of their own before and are excited to enroll in computer classes offered on site. Thank you to Comcast’s Internet Essentials program.

 

A BIG thank you to our very own Mayor Ed Lee for stopping by to have a bbq with the residents in their new beautiful courtyard! What a warm “welcome home!”
