About Us

Background

The Resilient Cayuga Resilience Action Plan development process is designed to provide all essential community stakeholder organizations an opportunity to contribute to the creation of a unifying Resilience Action Plan for the neighborhoods along the Brotherhood Way Corridor. As a partner community, Cayuga will be able to craft a customized resident planning process that reflects their location and availability.

Leadership

Coming Soon.

Cayuga Hub

The Empowered Communities Program‘s Neighborhood HUB initiative supports neighborhoods as they create community-based networks of organizations that advance the overall preparedness of communities across San Francisco. The HUB initiative provides essential support to residents as they recover community stressors and disasters. A national conversation has begun which points to the importance of creating strategies for local organizations and residents to assume lifesaving responsibilities in the event of a disaster. These activities include search and rescue, mass feeding, and supporting people sheltering in place.

Our Projects

Emergency Preparedness for Seniors & People with Disabilities

Resilient Cayuga, in partnership with Community Living Campaign and Cayuga Community Connectors, was awarded a $5,000 Community Investment Grant from SFPOA to educate the Cayuga community on Disaster Preparedness and GO BAG assembly for seniors and people with disabilities.

The goal of this project was to raise emergency preparedness awareness for Cayuga’s most vulnerable neighbors, to encourage relationships amount neighbors, and encourage people to sign-up for NERT training. In addition, this project aims to encourage neighbors to become active members of the Cayuga Improvement Association/Cayuga Connectors.

The outcome of the program will includes assembling and distributing 100+ GO BAGS to seniors and people with disabilities throughout the neighborhood. The contents are designed to help vulnerable residents shelter in place in the event of a disaster.This entire program was made possible by a SF Police Officers Association (SFPOA) grant to the Community Living Campaign. Participation by our Balboa HS JROTC is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks are due to the community participation for this project which includes SFPOA, Cayuga Community Connectors (Community Living Campaign), and Cayuga Improvement Association.
