Today, Supervisor Safai was elated to be joined by Mayor London Breed, BRIDGE Housing‘s Executive Vice President Smitha Seshadri, and Mission Neighborhood Health Center‘s Executive Director and CEO Brenda Storey to collectively celebrate District 11’s 4840 Mission Street affordable housing project, a project that is years in the making and that will bring much-needed affordable housing for working families.
This project is located in the heart of the Excelsior and will allow for working families who fear displacement to create a home so they can continue to thrive and make that neighborhood the rich area that it is. This is housing for working families — not condominiums — and District 11 residents will be able to apply for this housing because of the “neighborhood preference” that will be implemented when these units begin to be filled. Further, this project will be the new home of our existing nonprofit community clinic — Mission Neighborhood Health Center (“MNHC”) — and this new location means that MNHC will now have twice the square footage it currently has, a change that will enable MNHC to serve and see more residents. Lastly, this project will also consist of an art piece that will be accessible to the public and built with public input, that is ongoing, but once completed both District 11 residents and visitors will be able to enjoy and learn more about our history.

3. BRIDGE Housing’s Executive Vice President Smitha Seshadri
4. Mission Neighborhood Health Center’s Executive Director and CEO Brenda Storey
