Quarterbacking change in two communities
BRIDGE Housing and its coalition of partners seek to impact education, social and health outcomes for children and families in two communities where isolation, public safety concerns and lack of educational and economic resources are barriers for families to lead healthy, successful lives.
In San Francisco, BRIDGE is spearheading Rebuild Potrero, a project that will replace more than 600 units of public housing in the Potrero Terrace and Annex and add new affordable and market-rate homes to help close the widening economic gap that looms between the public housing residents and their neighbors on affluent Potrero Hill. In Los Angeles, BRIDGE is a partner in efforts to expand and redevelop Jordan Downs, a 700-unit public housing project in Watts. The new construction will replace the existing units, bring mixed-income housing to the area, and add needed retail, jobs and community resources.
BRIDGE is proud to be one of 13 "Partners in Progress" organizations selected by the Citi Foundation and Low Income Investment Fund to advance the community quarterback model.
