San Francisco City Impact exist to intervene on behalf of the people in the inner city of San Francisco. It has been in the Tenderloin District (inner city of San Francisco) for 35 years. One morning, Roger Huang was getting off work, and witnessed a young boy getting beaten up. His heart was stricken from his own history of abuse in his family. On his way home, Roger couldn’t shake this moment. He felt God asking, “what if this was your son?” Roger said, “No one lays a hand on either of my sons. I would have helped him. Protected him.” God replied, “they’re all the same to Me…”

“San Francisco City Impact began with the heart to make a simple difference in the community around me.”
Pastor Roger Huang, Founder and Executive Director of City Impact

Roger broke down before his wife, Maite, and they prayed. They decided to make 50 sandwiches the very next day to pass out to the community. Roger, his wife Maite, and family began a journey to serve in the Tenderloin, to find a need and fill it. They kept returning again and again into the buildings discovering desperate and dire situations—children, men, and woman. As they continued to serve and persevere, God has remained faithful. Today, City Impact has grown to over 8,000 volunteers a year, with multiple departments to serve and meet physical and spiritual needs of the community.

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.
