Our Mission

We are a community based organization dedicated to helping seniors and people living with disabilities age in community; safely in the homes they love and in the neighborhoods they know. Our village provides the resources to meet the practical, as well as the social, cultural, and educational interests of seniors living in San Francisco’s Richmond District neighborhood.

Why we are unique

Established in October of 2014, Golden Gate Village is one of the first Villages in the nation launched by a senior center. The Richmond Senior Center (RSC), with funding support from the Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS), is a neighborhood link to the continuum of care San Francisco has established for seniors and people living with disabilities.

Christina Wong, Program and Services Coordinator

Christina is originally from Hong Kong and is tri-lingual in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. She graduated with double degrees in Business Economics and Dramatic Arts from UC Santa Barbara. Upon graduation, she studied abroad in Japan where she experienced culture exchange and studied Japanese language. After she moved back to Hong Kong, Christina started her career in the banking industry where she built up her organizational and analytical skills.

In 2014, Christina decided to attend an acting program in San Francisco. While she enjoyed being an actress for several months, she came across Self Help for the Elderly where she started working with seniors. During her time with this organization, she assisted seniors in connecting with host agencies in providing desired job training and guided them to obtain an unsubsidized employment. Christina decided to join the Richmond Senior Center and Golden Gate Village in 2016, where she hopes she can get connected with the seniors in the Richmond district, listen to their stories, and help them with all their needs.
