For Residents: Youth Leadership
The HOPE SF Campaign is an ambitious effort to build on an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform multiple highly troubled San Francisco public housing projects into environmentally and economically sustainable mixed-income communities.
Coordinated by Enterprise and involving multiple public and private partners, HOPE SF will link financial investment and technical assistance with the large- scale effort to redevelop distressed public housing, thus supporting vital resident services, green design, and school and neighborhood improvement.
Need to be Addressed
Much of San Francisco’s public housing was originally built as temporary housing in the 1940s and 1950s, often with low-quality construction and has reached the end of its useful life within the last few decades.
Therefore, within the last 20 years, San Francisco has been aggressive and successful at leveraging federal resources to redevelop several large public housing projects, demolishing and rebuilding developments in the Mission, North Beach, and Hayes Valley neighborhoods.
However, eight public housing developments remain that are seriously troubled, both physically and socially. Four of these are in the first phase of HOPE SF: Hunters View, located in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood; Sunnydale, located in Visitacion Valley; Potrero Terrace and Annex, located in Potrero Hill; and Westside Courts, located in the Western Addition.
