Welcome to the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of  TTN

Our chapter also supports an artists' group as well as a dining group and non-fiction book groups.We welcome suggestions for new special interest groups.  
We have also established collaborations with relevant organizations in the Bay Area including San Francisco Village, Jewish Community Center of San Francisco,  Commission on the Status of Women, and the Commonwealth Club of California.

San Francisco Bay Area TTN Members enjoy many benefits including:
  • Meeting interesting, supportive women.
  • Participating in members-only Special Interest Groups, outings and activities, forming new friendships.

The Caring Collaborative, East Bay/San Francisco offers a support system in which women provide and receive services for medical and other life challenges. It is based on the Caring Collaborative, the innovative model for aging in community developed in New York by The Transition Network.  If you live in the East Bay and would like to learn more about the Caring Community, send a message to our Caring Collaborative Coordinator.
