Golden Gate Senior Services (GGSS) was established in 1975 to serve the seniors and now, the younger disabled of San Francisco. We were part of the original group of service providers funded by the San Francisco Commission on the Aging. Starting with one donated desk in the back of an Economic Opportunity Council office on Haight Street, our original purpose was to provide outreach to the seniors of this neighborhood. We soon realized San Francisco needed a network of neighborhood senior centers. During the past 34 years, GGSS has established senior centers in the Haight-Asbury, Castro, Noe Valley, the OMI, and the Richmond districts. Presently GGSS operates the Richmond and Castro Multipurpose Senior Centers. Since the early 1980s GGSS has been integrating developmentally disabled adults into our Centers. In 1994, we established our own program to serve this population Project Integration.
