Creating a Life Plan Community Right Here in Humboldt County

Life Plan Humboldt (LPH) is a grassroots effort to plan and build the first not-for-profit, mixed-income life plan community in Humboldt County, California.

Life plan communities offer independent living for active older adults with assisted living and memory support if needed. We aim to create a resident-led, aging-in-place community that supports independence, socialization, intellectual stimulation, and community involvement.

We plan to build 144 apartments and cottages on 14+ acres in McKinleyville close to an active downtown area. On the same property, a separate nonprofit will develop 30 to 60 affordable senior homes. Residents will all share the same common social areas and activities.

The Life Plan Humboldt board, led by Ann Lindsay M.D., is comprised of local community leaders with deep commitments to the North Coast and experience implementing complex projects.

Our Community Supports Us...

Help Design Our Life Plan Humboldt Community

Because we want to stay in this beautiful area, a group of local individuals is committed to building and managing a not-for-profit, inclusive life plan community that’s focused on active, mindful, engaged aging in Humboldt County.

Life plan communities offer a continuum of living situations, from independent living to assisted living to memory care. A person can age in community, accessing higher levels of care as needed.

Life Plan Humboldt is projecting 144 cottages and apartments, plus up to 60 homes developed separately as affordable senior housing.

Take the Life Plan Humboldt Move-In-Survey which will be used to help us decide what features and amenities will be part of the design of our community. It will also help us gauge who is interested in moving in to our community once built.
