supporting our residents
While TODCO is often known for developing and operating high-quality affordable housing, we are also a caring and capable provider of supportive resident services for our more than 1,000 residents, and many SoMa community members.
Shortly after opening our first building, we established the Resident Services and Activities Program (RSAP) in 1985. It began with a weekday lunch program provided by the Salvation Army Senior Meals Program to ensure a nutritious daily meal, and gradually expanded with additional services, programs and activities.
Today TODCO offers a wide range of general and specialized programs, social services and activities, including social, recreational, physical, cultural, health, nutrition, trips, cognitive health and educational programs.
Our Social Services Program offers:
case coordination with outside providers,
referral and support for substance dependence,
information, assistance and referral for benefits, nutrition, IHSS, housing resources, energy programs, and healthcare
advocacy and assistance for property management- related items,
appointment reminders and wellness checks, and
community building among residents.
Through TODCO, residents can participate in:
fitness exercise, arts and crafts, cooking, creative arts and music classes,
movie screenings and games,
nutrition programs, including weekday meals, weekly food pantries, and a senior food box program
shopping and recreational trips within San Francisco and around the Bay Area,
holiday, birthday and building anniversary celebrations, and
our community garden with garden beds at Alice Street Gardens, or on building rooftop gardens.
Residents receive monthly newsletters with a calendar of events. Our materials and classes are translated into Chinese and Russian to accommodate our diverse resident population.
Each year TODCO provides more than $1,000,000 in direct supportive social services, special events, trips, arts programs, and other activities, plus additional nutrition program in-kind aid to residents of almost $500,000.
We pride ourselves on caring for our residential buildings and, most importantly, for the people inside.
