Chinatown CDC works with community members young and old every day to help build a stronger community in Chinatown and across San Francisco.
Picture hundreds of high school youth working together to clean up Chinatown and then seeing some of them lead a Chinatown Tour. Imagine Chinatown Alleyways being renovated and filled with art, murals, new lighting and the occasional music street fair.
Picture 700 seniors, children, youth, and single room occupancy (SRO) families all coming together every month to learn what is happening in local policies, gain leadership skills, and plan for a safer Chinatown.
