The District 10 Financial Empowerment Program launched Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at the offices of the San Francisco Housing Development Corporation. The event was celebrated with over 80 District 10 residents and included vast support from elected officials and community representatives. The first Financial Empowerment Eligibility Workshops was nearly booked long before the program launch event ended! It was very important for the residents of District 10 to see the good faiths efforts that is the result of the collaboration between different partners, city agencies and community based organizations and that these organizations are committed to ensure the program delivers the expected outcome to District 10 residents and District 10 as a whole.
This mobilization and the willingness of the existing residents to prepare as District 10 moves into the future is very encouraging, exciting and heartwarming!
