California Master Plan for Aging

Recognizing that California’s over-65 population is projected to grow to 8.6 million by 2030, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order calling for the creation of Master Plan for Aging to be developed by October 1, 2020. The Master Plan will serve as a blueprint that can be used by state government, local communities, private organizations and philanthropy to build environments that promote an age-friendly California.

Our President & CEO, Debbie Toth, was appointed to the Master Plan for Aging Stakeholder Advisory Committee and has been helping to shape the Master Plan to help serve seniors from all backgrounds in the Bay Area and throughout the state.

You can find background on the Master Plan for Aging at the California Department of Aging, or see what we’re doing locally to get involved and help shape the future of aging in California!
