WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW?
Since 2018, our main priority is to focus on the programs that are currently running and improving the quality of our elementary school by implementing a Specialized Services Department for our kids with special needs, our Volunteer Center, Missions Teams and College Partnerships. We are launching a new partnership with Threads For Therapy Clothing Brand to provide therapy play based groups to kids in the community that have special needs. It allows the families to access affordable clothing and subsidized time in a play group setting with licensed therapists.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We are a non-profit organization that mobilizes people to intervene through our multiple ministries.
HOW WILL WE SUCCEED?
By ensuring every decision we make keeps our pace, benefits our people, and helps track towards our strategic plan.
WHO MUST DO WHAT?
Ministers focus on ministry. Administers focus on administration. Managers care for staff. Mobilizers include volunteers.
One early morning in 1984 after getting off the graveyard shift, Roger Huang was waiting for a tow truck in the Tenderloin. He noticed a young boy being picked on by a group of bullies. Torn between intervening to help the boy and not wanting to get involved, he drove away with a heavy heart. On the way home God laid the burden on his heart, “What if that was your son being picked on?” Roger said, "I would have intervened." God replied, "They're all the same to me." The next morning Roger and Maite made 50 sandwiches, and Roger went back to the Tenderloin to give them away to the homeless that same day. The following week he brought his wife Maite to the Tenderloin to help with the ministry, and San Francisco City Impact was born.
Today, the ministry has grown to seven major departments with 11 weekly programs. Everything we do is to intervene on behalf of the people in the inner city of San Francisco.
