What is the District 10 Financial Empowerment Program?

 

The District 10 Financial Empowerment Program (D10 FEP) provides a network of financial services and products specifically designed to support eligible clients in their efforts to achieve their mid- to long-term financial goals and build the financial capability of low- and moderate-income residents of San Francisco’s District 10.

Where is District 10?

San Francisco Supervisorial District 10 is in the southeastern section of San Francisco and includes the neighborhoods of Potrero Hill, Central Waterfront, Dogpatch, Bayview/Hunters Point, Little Hollywood, India Basin, Silver Terrace, Visitacion Valley, and Candlestick Point. Although not perfectly aligned, District 10 roughly approximates the boundaries of the 94124, 94134, and 94107 zip codes.

 

What is Financial Empowerment?

Financial empowerment is the ability to have more choices in life through an individual’s increased capability to make sound financial decisions. This transformed financial stability can be achieved through financial education, increased credit scores and savings, reduction in debt, better ability to

manage emergencies, and use of appropriate and fiscally responsible products.

 

 

This program is an innovative response to the growing need for financial education, counseling and coaching in our community.

SFHDC Financial Empowerment Program Introduction “Meet & Greet”

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.
