Welcome to Resilient Bayview

Since 2013, a group of Bayview non-profits, small businesses, faith-based organizations, residents and city agency stakeholders have been working to advance a vision for the Bayview. This vision is of a community rich in social & economic opportunity and success for residents and businesses. The Resilient Bayview program members have worked intensely to inventory and prioritize the goals and objectives for the various community stakeholders. These stakeholders are committed to making the Bayview a great place to live, work and visit.


Bayview is an active and dynamic community where individuals, families, organizations, and businesses deliver exceptional goods and services, all the while providing opportunities to catalyze the economic, spiritual, and cultural potential of the neighborhood. During times of stress, our community will collectively respond with confidence and compassion.



Empower individuals and families within Bayview to increase their level of resilience, enhancing their ability to prepare for and recover from times of stress.


Enhance Bayview organizations’ and businesses’ ability to be self-sufficient, while advancing inter-agency support, to augment their programmatic, economic, spiritual, and cultural potential for resilience.


Reinforce the Bayview community’s resilience through enhancing neighborhood-led response and recovery plans and coordinating with all stakeholders to collectively respond with confidence and compassion.

Community HUB

3rd Street HUB

The HUB initiative supports neighborhoods as they create community-based networks of organizations that advance the overall preparedness of communities across San Francisco.

A national conversation has begun which points to the importance of creating strategies for local organizations and residents to assume lifesaving responsibilities in the event of a disaster. These activities include search and rescue, mass feeding, and supporting people sheltering in place.

2017-2018 Initiatives and Projects

Resilient Youth Leadership Academy

A key programmatic goal of the Resilient Bayview planning process was to start a youth leadership program that would offer participants the opportunity to develop their professional and civic leadership skills while learning about environmental stressors experienced by urban neighborhoods and ways to mitigate them.

In light of this goal the A. Philip Randolph Institute (Resilient Bayivew partner) set out with the objective to engage 10 Bayview youth in an intensive 8 week professional and civic development program where they learned about cross-sector partnerships, public policy, and the various impacts of climate change on the Bayview Community.

Community Asset Mapping

Resilient Bayview has been flexing their technology arms! In partnership with Appallicious, Resilient Bayview is creating a Community Asset Mapping tool using Bayview community data and visualization software to leverage stakeholder resilience planning processes.

By providing training, collaborating with other city agencies to make relevant data organized and more easily accessible, and designing a comprehensive data visualization platform tailored to daily and situational resilience, communities will be able to improve upon the community-based strategies outlined in their Resilience Action Plans.
