David Chong

CMC, Certified GCM, RCFE Admin, JD, MA 

Executive Director 

David has worn a few different hats in his career, though the one that seems to fit the best is geriatric care. For the last few years, he has successfully led teams to make the final time of life good for elderly San Diegans in their own homes. Previously, David owned and operated The Park at Mount Helix and founded an Internet-based senior housing referral service, AssistMatch. Early in his career, he practiced corporate law in Taipei at Jones Day and later served as a Business Advisor at the microfinance nonprofit, ACCION San Diego.

As a foundation to his career, David’s most useful degrees are his B.S. in Business Administration from Biola University and his J.D. from Boalt Hall School of Law at U.C. Berkeley. The not-quite-as-practical program was the M.A. in Practical Theology from University of San Diego. At various times he has held licenses in California as an attorney with the State Bar, as a broker with the Department of Real Estate, and as a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly Administrator with the Department of Social Services. He is a Care Manager, Certified through the National Academy of Certified Care Managers and a Certified Geriatric Care Manager with the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers.
David has served as a board member in both nonprofit and for-profit entities. He currently serves on the board of San Diego Cooperative Charter School and is a member of the La Jolla Golden Triangle Rotary.
Some particularly favorite activities have included scuba, backpacking, and basketball (and coaching basketball). When not enjoying time with his Coast Care Partners partners, he can typically be found seizing the day with his wife, Sarah, and his four children.
