CHAIRS STEER THE CHARGE; COMMUNITY HEEDS THE CALL

Arlene Krieger and David Friedman are thrilled with the community’s response to Live. Grow. Flourish., the comprehensive campaign that will transform the Jewish Home and redevelop the campus from a largely skilled nursing facility to a broad spectrum of residences, services, and programs for people as they age.

“We’ve started construction and we’re very gratified,” says David, who chairs the campaign. “Today’s older adults want to continue to grow as they age, even when they may need help to live on their own. As we go into the future, our new campus will be at the leading edge of what older adults need.”

Says Arlene, who chairs Jewish Home & Senior Living Foundation, “Community supporters have been very positive about our project. They see the need for it. That’s why – knock on wood – we’ve done so well.”

Arlene was part of the group who introduced the plan for the transformation to the San Francisco commissioners and the city’s Board of Supervisors for their approval in late 2016. “The hearings went magnificently, right through City Hall, and the plan was unanimously approved,” she reports. “Some of the commissioners, who were familiar with the Home but hadn’t personally visited it, were close to tears after hearing testimony from a resident’s family member. They didn’t realize how valuable the Home is.”

The more than $75 million raised to date for Live. Grow. Flourish will fund the new assisted-living and memory-support apartments in the Lynne & Roy M. Frank Residences and Byer Square (a non-residential marketplace for seniors’ services, support and community); parlay into investments in the skilled nursing areas and campus improvements; and augment the Home’s endowment for charitable subsidies.

Sporting hard hats and hefting spades, Arlene Krieger and David Friedman were all smiles at the campus’s October 2016 ceremonial groundbreaking.
