About our Board of Directors

ElderHelp board members are leaders in San Diego who care about our mission of supporting seniors as they age with dignity and independence. These leaders are responsible for the overall governance, financial oversight, and strategic direction of ElderHelp’s operations. Board Members work in the community to increase awareness about issues in aging and how ElderHelp’s programs and services are meeting these needs.

Generally comprised of 11-15 members, the ElderHelp Board meets 8 times annually and are active with ElderHelp’s events and fundraising campaigns. Board members are also involved in separate committee meetings.
