We believe that to succeed, young people need affordable homes in safe neighborhoods and support to learn, play and grow.

In San Francisco’s Sunnydale neighborhood, kids lack these basics and too often don’t thrive. That’s why Mercy Housing, Related California, and Sunnydale residents are collaborating to transform Sunnydale – including creating a Hub with a childcare center, a Boys & Girls Club, vibrant community spaces, and a full-service recreation center. For the first time, kids and families in Sunnydale will have safe spaces in which to thrive together.

 

Sunnydale's Challenges

San Francisco is booming economically, but this prosperity is not shared by all. Especially not the 858 kids in Sunnydale, San Francisco’s largest public housing community. Years of disinvestment in Sunnydale have led to a concentration of families in poverty, limited community resources, and deteriorating public spaces.

COMMUNITY RESOURCES LIMITED

Sunnydale residents go without resources that other San Franciscans enjoy.

INSUFFICIENT YOUTH SPACES

Youth Serving facilities are under-resourced.

Our Response: A Community Hub

The Hub will become the physical heart this community has never had. It will include a Boys & Girls Club, an early childhood development center, a gymnasium, landscaped play areas, a welcoming courtyard, a café, and space for fitness and cooking classes, parties, and friendly hanging out.
