Lina's Story | The Power of Christmas

Lina grew up in the Tenderloin District (inner city) of San Francisco. She was engrossed with the survival culture, and bullying in a tough area. Lina developed a hardness in order to protect herself from the pain. However, one tradition at City Impact tugged on Lina’s heart to keep returning each year. Learn more about Lina’s story through the video below.

The Pre-Christmas Outreach and Christmas Day Outreach host our Kids Christmas Toy Sign up & Giveaway. Families sign up for a small fee during the holiday season to receive a toy on the Pre-Christmas Outreach. Any families who missed the sign up can receive a toy FREE on Christmas Day.

San Francisco exists to intervene on behalf of the people in the inner city of San Francisco. We mobilize over 8,000 volunteers a year to intervene on behalf of others.

Felicia's Story – You Can Make an Impact

Felicia believed she wouldn't live past her young age through a chronic history of abuse, victimization, and injustice. By a miracle she was able to get out, but with the help someone who intervened. Someone who visited her, someone who invited her in, someone who cared for her, someone who brought her home.

City Impact is an idea that one man or woman can make a difference. Through City Impact's multiple departments, a holistic approach is taken to revitalize a community and change a life.
