San Francisco Housing Development Corporation along with the Implementation Committee for the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and Candlestick Point CCBA held its Financial Empowerment Program Introduction as the first step to implementing its Financial Empowerment programs to the residents of District 10. SFHDC also took this opportunity to introduce key staff members of the Financial Empowerment Team to participants of the 2013 listening sessions. We invited the participating Executive Directors and other members of these organizations to see the result of their work and to bring any questions or concerns about the upcoming programs.
It was very encouraging to see representatives from The United Council of Human Services, The Bayview Opera House, Young Community Developers, College Track, The Implementation Committee for the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and Candlestick Point CCBA, Bayview Hunters Point Multipurpose Senior Services, Tax Aide, The San Francisco Office of Financial Empowerment, San Francisco Organizing Project, The San Francisco Labor Foundation and The San Francisco Foundation. There was a rich and healthy discussion between all parties involved, a variety of topics were touched upon ranging from systematic barriers to housing to personalized financial services.
SFHDC encouraged the representatives of these organizations to reach back into their constituencies and inform residents of District 10 of the programs that are going to be rolling out Mid-June from the Financial Empowerment grant awarded to SFHDC.
