Creating a Life Plan Community Right Here in Humboldt County

Life Plan Humboldt is a tax-exempt nonprofit formed to plan, build, and support a mixed-income Life Plan Community in Humboldt County, California.

We aim to create a resident-led, aging-in-place community in Humboldt providing secure, accessible homes and environmentally responsible setting that supports independence, socialization, personal growth, community involvement, and intellectual stimulation. Life Plan Humboldt will keep people close to their friends and families and provide a continuum of services to address changing needs over time.

We want local control and a place that reflects North Coast culture and values, and that includes a mix of income levels that reflects Humboldt County’s population.

The Life Plan Humboldt (LPH) 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.

LPH has entered into an agreement to purchase a 14+ acre property in McKinleyville (view site) to create a campus-like residential setting. We will be combining private residences with common social areas and open space, including areas to enjoy nature and to farm. We plan to begin preliminary design in 2023. Ground-breaking could be from two to five years away.

The LPH board is learning from other Life Plan Communities and working with experienced advisors who have created mixed-income communities around the United States for help setting up the financial structure, operations, and design of our community.

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.
