HOPE SF values the existing community and strives to help current residents preserve the positive attributes of the existing communities, and fully participate in the design and implementation of the new community.
Resident leadership is needed to improve conditions, whether it’s in Potrero, Westside Courts, Sunnydale, Hunters View, or Alice Griffith. Transforming these long-neglected neighborhoods into thriving, sustainable communities will enable residents to access opportunities that will ensure their families will thrive for generations to come.
