HOPE SF is a visionary initiative that will transform San Francisco’s most impoverished public housing communities into healthy, thriving, mixed-income neighborhoods. More than simply replacing bricks and mortar, HOPE SF will work in partnership with communities to turn them into places of real hope and opportunity for their residents. Marshalling the resources needed for HOPE SF to reach its full potential requires that all community partners – individuals, corporations, foundations, and public agencies – do their part. The need is urgent, and the time is now.
Critical to the success of HOPE SF is the Campaign for HOPE SF, a unique public-private partnership - with an ambitious capital-raising goal of $25 million by 2016. The Campaign for HOPE SF will leverage support and invest dollars in a range of areas to ensure the best outcomes for HOPE SF residents and neighborhoods.
The Campaign for HOPE SF is a collaborative of foundations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and community members, which assembles private resources – both funding and other support – to strengthen the revitalization of HOPE SF communities. It was established by Enterprise Community Partners in partnership with The San Francisco Foundation and the City of San Francisco in 2011. This effort is now led by a Steering Committee and a Leadership Committee.
