Homebridge, Inc.

Chief Financial Officer

THE ORGANIZATION

Homebridge, Inc. (formerly In-Home Supportive Services Consortium) is a San Francisco-based non-profit that delivers safe and effective home care, trains caregivers for successful employment and partners with hospitals to safely transition patients home. Through its unique service model, the agency helps complexly-diagnosed older adults and adults with disabilities to live independently in their homes and communities of choice. Each year, Homebridge and its staff of 450 employees serve over 1,300 clients. More information about Homebridge can be found on its website: www.homebridgeca.org.

Homebridge began in 1985 as a pilot project of several San Francisco non-profits that sought to enable San Franciscans with special challenges to live at home with appropriate supports. Over time, Homebridge’s success in developing and perfecting this model of care resulted in its selection as the only provider of “contract mode” in-home supportive services for the City of San Francisco, providing critical support to those unable to hire and manage their own care providers. Today, fueled by the demand for its services, Homebridge has grown to become a $28M non-profit and is positioned for significant growth at the forefront of the integration of long term services with healthcare.
