Shanti’s programs provide individualized, holistic services to San Franciscans in need of compassion and support so they can live happier and healthier lives.

Shanti staff and volunteers work with individuals facing illness, including cancer and HIV, disability, aging, and systemic inequities to help them overcome barriers to care and lack of connection. We provide emotional support, community building, and critical safety net resources, such as client advocacy, health education, and linkage to social services.

Since our founding more than 45 years ago, Shanti has expanded our programming to meet the evolving needs of our community.  You can learn more about our history in Our Story.
