The San Francisco Housing Development Corporation (SFHDC) fosters financial stability through the development of affordable housing, the facilitation of homeownership and the economic empowerment and revitalization of Bayview Hunters Point and other neighborhoods of Southeast San Francisco. The four core program areas offered at SFHDC work to ensure the betterment of the community and its members. These programs include housing development, financial empowerment, supportive services and economic development.
SFHDC was founded in 1988 by San Francisco residents who were interested in combating the widespread displacement of the ’60s and ’70s. Governmental agencies removed residents through ‘redevelopment programs’ that disproportionately affected African Americans and other people of color. Formed by African American community leaders, SFHDC continues to focus on serving people of color and the traditionally African American Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood.
Since 1988, SFHDC has built over 650 affordable homes in San Francisco, empowered thousands of people to set and attain financial goals, and assisted hundreds of families in the purchase of their first home. With nearly 1,000 new units in development and a burgeoning small sites initiative, hope springs economic opportunity for all San Francisco residents.
