Who We Are

Hunters Point Family, a community family for our youth

Hunters Point Family is a grass-roots, community-based organization that provides holistic programs supporting education, leadership and workforce development, arts enrichment, and recreation to at-risk African American youth and young adults living in the Bayview Hunters Point community of San Francisco.

We offer 5 different programs each targeting specific youth development needs and academic gaps. We partner with 200 youths (ages 10-22) and their families each year in programs that comprehensively support and serve each young person’s social, educational, recreational and home needs. Challenging our youth to reach their highest potential is how we set the bar at Hunters Point Family. Read more

Today

Our continuing mission is to grow independent, strong, and productive adults through activities that are informed by the culture of the predominantly African American Bayview Hunters Point community. We constructively address the impacts to each individual from poverty, food insecurity, drug abuse, HIV and violence, and together we transform that harsh experience into tangible steps for a successful and productive future.

History

HPF began as a single program in 1997, when Bayview/Hunters Point as a community was recovering from the first aftershocks of a crack cocaine epidemic. Drug abuse, gang violence, crime and poverty had infiltrated our community and left individuals and families in ruin. As our community recovered its health and social stability, we saw many of our youth suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Hunters Point Family recognized the multidimensional needs of our youth and their families and began its youth outreach with a single program, Girls 2000.

We invite you to share our success.
