San Francisco Zen Center
Zen Hospice Project, now known as Zen Caregiving Project, was founded as part of the San Francisco Zen Center before it incorporated as a separate 501c3 non-profit organization in 1988. After more than 30 years, the long-standing relationship between the two organizations continues. Paul Haller, a leading SFZC teacher, and its former abbot is a member of our board of directors. Senior SFZC teachers have been regular presenters at our volunteer community meetings. Many of our volunteers come to us through their relationship to the center. And, current and former Zen Caregiving Project staff are involved in the creation of an SFZC project to create a zen-inspired senior living community in Sonoma County.
