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.



Provide streamlined access to information that supports an individual’s ability to make smart decisions regarding mitigation, preparedness and response activities.


Support HUB Member organizations efforts to develop higher levels of interoperability amongst nearby stakeholder organizations and residents.


Ensure that neighborhood stakeholder organizations and their external resilience partners are able to communicate amongst themselves and residents before, during and after a disaster in a culturally competent way.

Neighborfest 2016

Neighborfest 2016 was an event that residents could come together and enjoy the sense of community and opportunity. The exercises at this event created tools for a local disaster plan and it raised money to buy neighborhood supplies like butane burners, flashlights, and more. This event improved connections among neighbors and created an opportunity for community building.

Our 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.
