Director of 30th Street Senior Center
As Director of 30th Street Senior Center, Valorie Villela’s mission is to help seniors remain healthy, active and in their community. This idea has motivated her work in the field for over 35 years. She has been the Director of 30th Street Senior Center’s programs since 1987, which include the management and oversight of the four programs: Nutrition Services, the Activities Program, Case Management and the Always Active program.
Prior to On Lok taking over the management of 30th Street Senior Center in 1995, it operated under a variety of different parent organizations, including the California Pacific Medical Center. Valorie first started at the center as a nutritionist, running the food service and staffing for the nutrition program.
Valorie serves on the board of the Coalition of Agencies Serving the Elderly and is a member of the Long Term Care Coordinating Council, as well as the advisory council for UCSF’s Center for Aging in Diverse Communities.
Valorie has taught consumer and Health Education in the Latino Community for over 35 years as a faculty member.
Our diverse and experienced management team embodies the shared goal of the Center and On Lok Lifeways: to help seniors remain in their own homes and the communities they love with the support of a dedicated team of healthcare and social service professionals.
