Senior Support Program of the Tri-Valley (SSPTV) is an independent, non-profit agency serving seniors over age 60 in the cities of Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, and Sunol. SSPTV was established in 1981 with a Friendly Visitor volunteer program serving 35 seniors. It has since grown to include programs which annually serve approximately 1,600 seniors in the Tri-Valley area, as well as about 5,000 information and referral calls and visits. A core of about 100 volunteers provide over 4,000 visits and 5,000 phone visits a year to seniors, as well. We pride ourselves in listening to the needs of our area’s senior citizens and their families to create programs to fit those needs.
Our mission is to provide service and assistance to seniors that will:
- Foster independence
- Promote safety and well being
- Preserve dignity
- Improve quality of life
Since 2006 we have been an independent non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
Funding for our programs is provided through grants from the cities of Pleasanton, Livermore, and Dublin, the Alameda County Departments of Behavioral Health, Area Agency on Aging, and Public Health, and Measure A Alameda County Health Care Services, Supervisor Scott Haggerty, Supervisor Nate Miley, Public Authority for In-Home Support Services, Alameda County Transportation Commission, Kaiser Permanente, and Individual Donations.
