The mission of SFHDC is to foster financial stability through the development of affordable housing, the facilitation of asset building, and revitalization of San Francisco's underserved neighborhoods.
San Francisco Housing Development Corporation was founded in 1988 by a group of primarily African American leaders who wanted to stem the widespread displacement of residents from San Francisco that began in the 1960s and 1970s, and which had decimated their community. The early “urban renewal” efforts of the Fillmore and Bayview Hunters Point districts had torn apart thousands of homes and lives, particularly among African Americans and other people of color, and SFHDC could provide resources to those trying to preserve or restore their place in San Francisco. Today, SFHDC continues to focus on helping low- and moderate-income individuals and families stay in San Francisco or come back to the city they used to call home.
