Since 2013, a group of Miraloma Park non-profits, small businesses, faith-based organizations, residents and city agency stakeholders have been working to advance a vision for the Miraloma Park neighborhood. This vision is of a community rich in social & economic opportunity and success for residents and businesses. The Resilient Miraloma Park program members have worked intensely to inventory and prioritize the goals and objectives for the various community stakeholders. These stakeholders are committed to making Miraloma Park a great place to live, work and visit.
The HUB initiative supports neighborhoods as they create community-based networks of organizations that advance the overall preparedness of communities across San Francisco.
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.
Miraloma Park is an active and dynamic community where individuals, families, organizations, and businesses deliver exceptional goods and services, all the while providing opportunities to catalyze the economic, spiritual, and cultural potential of the neighborhood. During times of stress, our community will collectively respond with confidence and compassion.
