San Diego Food Bank: In both central San Diego and North County, ElderHelp facilitates nutritious food delivery from the San Diego Food Bank to seniors with limited transportation and mobility. Our certified food bank shoppers procure over 1500 pounds of food weekly which is then processed and distributed through our pantry and delivered to seniors in residential communities as well as individual senior homes.

Community Information Exchange (CIESD) is a technology that helps the underserved get the help they need, when they need it, by facilitating seamless care coordination that improves client health and social outcomes. Through sophisticated technology that manages data sharing portals, CIESD allows for the exchange of individual client information across organizations, in real-time, and provides a more comprehensive view of the needs and services of individuals under their care. ElderHelp is one of four local senior care agencies to participate in the CIESD Cohort Phase Two pilot program.
Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD) was formed in 1952 to maintain and improve the physical and behavioral health of its East County constituents.

ElderHelp has been a longtime beneficiary and partner with GHD, meeting social and healthcare needs of its constituents since 1998.
