The Jewish Home’s leadership remains committed to assuring the viability of its programs and services throughout the 21st century. An outcome of the strategic visioning process was the creation and adoption of a new “Vision Statement”:
To become a regional resource as an integral part of a continuum of care throughout the Bay Area that provides senior adults with a variety of life-enriching programs and services that are accessible, promote individual dignity, encourage independence, connect them to their community, and reflect the social, cultural, and spiritual values of Jewish tradition.
Formally adopted by the Jewish Home of San Francisco’s board of trustees on April 27, 2006.
