Founded in 1988 by San Francisco residents aiming to combat the widespread displacement of people of color in the 1960s and 70s, the San Francisco Housing Development Corporation (SFHDC) aims to foster financial stability among people of color by developing affordable housing, facilitating homeownership, and catalyzing the economic empowerment and revitalization of Bayview Hunters Point and other neighborhoods of Southeast San Francisco. Since 1995, SFHDC has developed nearly 400 affordable homes. Through its Financial Empowerment Center, SFHDC provides free and low-cost financial and housing counseling and workshops, classes and individual counseling focused on financial literacy and asset building to low- and moderate-income people, serving over 2,000 since 2009. SFHDC’s economic development efforts focus on the Third Street Corridor in Bayview-Hunters Point and other historically African-American neighborhoods in southeast San Francisco. Economic development projects include SFHDC’s Financial Empowerment Center and several mixed-use spaces.
