Our Mission & Values

Vision: Our communities are resilient and vibrant where everyone participates, prospers, and succeeds.

Mission: Mission Neighborhood Centers serves over 3000 low-income seniors, youth and families with young children at 11 sites throughout San Francisco. With a legacy dating back over 100 years, our guiding principles remain the same: empowerment, cultural affirmation and personal responsibility. We provide a continuum of educational programs and social services to the community populations most in need. MNC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

MNC delivers culturally sensitive, multi-generational, community-based services focused on low-income families. We develop and promote leadership skills that empower families to build strong, healthy and vibrant neighborhoods.

Our clients are predominantly Latino, African American and South Sea Islander families living in San Francisco’s Mission, Excelsior, Mission Bay and Bayview Districts.
