Grantees in the News: HOPE SF and the Walking School Bus
The Chron ran Lois Kazakoff’s article about the Walking School Bus on November 29th.
The article does a great job of describing one of the innovative programs HOPE SF has launched to address safety and increase school attendance of kids in public housing on Potrero Hill. We’re very proud how this project engages and supports resident leadership in a very simple and low cost way, with good results so far – for both the kids and the adults. It’s also a good example of how the City and the housing developer (in this case, BRIDGE Housing) has started working with residents way in advance of the actual housing construction.
The Fund is supporting HOPE SF through a grant to the Northern California office of Enterprise Community Partners which supports the stakeholders involved in the HOPE SF public/private partnership, and the Campaign for Hope SF.
