Founded in 1954, Vivalon is a leading community based nonprofit service organization in Northern California. Vivalon prides itself on its responsiveness and its ability to evolve to meet the growing and changing needs of the communities it serves in Marin, San Francisco, and Sonoma counties. The organization’s vision is to ensure that every adult has the opportunity to age with independence, dignity, and grace. Vivalon provides essential support services such as specialized transportation, nutrition, social connection, information and assistance delivered through the power of human connection to a diverse population. In addition to serving the needs of older adults and individuals with disabilities, Vivalon’s services have expanded to include other vulnerable populations such as those dealing with chronic illnesses, the homeless, and low-income families.
