***Human Services Agency (HSA)
Listening session for Disability Community Cultural Center 

The San Francisco Human Services Agency (SFHSA) and the Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS) invite you to a community listening session to hear more about your vision for what should be included in the Disability Community Cultural Center. 

This is a new and unique program in San Francisco for the disability community and we hope to hear your input, thoughts, and comments on the development of this center. There is an identified space for the center at 240 Van Ness, the future site of the Kelsey Civic Center housing currently under construction. We have previously released Request for Proposals (RFP), which we withdrew pending community listening sessions. We will be re-releasing this RFP in the next few weeks. 

We appreciate and welcome your comments and input, although this is no guarantee that suggestions will be incorporated into the RFP or used in any other way. Please join us, and distribute this announcement widely.

The Longmore Institute completed an eleven-month project to inform the development of the Disability Community Cultural Center. This report, “San Francisco Disability Community Cultural Center: Final Report (May 2019),” can be viewed at

Additionally, we will accept written comments. Please email your comments to Ella Lee, Contract Manager, at by the date of this listening session.

The listening session for Disability Community Cultural Center will be held on Thursday, February 23, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm via Zoom. 

(American Sign Language interpretation will be provided at the meeting)
