City Impact Conference 2019 is here! Our annual conference is a one day hands-on ministry experience to worship Jesus, and serve the city. Gather with thousands of people to be inspired, and serve in one of 45+ inner city outreaches. This year our theme is REFRESH, from Proverbs 11:25: A generous person will prosper; whoever REFRESHES others will be REFRESHED.
In the chaos of today’s society, and monotony of everyday life, this conference is an opportunity to REFRESH yourself and others through a full day of worship, and service. Letting go of differences, and dissensions, we gather in unity as one body to intervene on behalf of others!

At a young age, Art fell in love, and married into a wealthy family. Like any parents, Art’s in-laws remained concerned for the well-being of their daughter. Art’s dream was to become a pastor and pursue theology school. Art began the first steps, however when time came for the entrance exam, he failed. Art’s wife left him which spiraled him down to drugs and alcohol. Art was left stuck, and alone…that’s when volunteers stopped in and invited him into the Rescue Mission. Check out Art’s full story in the video below.
You can make a difference on someone like Art this March. Will you give to help make an impact on a life?
Over 40% of the Tenderloin (inner city of San Francisco) families are single mother homes. San Francisco City Academy, our K-8 school has around 90 kids and families who endure the hustle and bustle of the urban life. The efforts of every mom goes unnoticed, especially in the inner city where distribution of resources are offset, and low-income families struggle to make ends meet.
On Valentine’s Day, City Impact got to bless over 30 moms while distributing beauty products given by a number of campaign sponsors through Project Beauty Share. This was a moment to take in and see so many working moms all together for a mid-day break on Valentine’s Day.
Check out our quick recap and be sure to share and vote for us!
City Impact received beauty products from multiple campaign sponsors including ColourPopCYO Cosmetics L'Oréal Paris Maybelline New York Morphe BrushesNative Sigma Beauty wet n wild. The products were used to bless 78 mothers of our City Academy, K-8 students. One of the mothers was so excited to receive a product from Colourpop CYO Cosmetics. “I bought it a few weeks ago and it broke, and I was looking to get one again, but I’m so excited to receive one today” the mother said.
Another mom said, “I wasn’t going to do anything on Valentine’s day, but this was such an amazing treat!”
City Impact is excited to continue to restore beauty and dignity back to the people in the inner city of San Francisco. Thank you to the product sponsors and Project Beauty Share who graciously showered us with these wonderful products.
Beauty products and hygiene care might be small stuff for a lot of people, but for the women that are struggling with homelessness, and mental illness, it's EVERYTHING to find dignity restored.
