Resilient Miraloma Park

Welcome to Resilient Miraloma Park

 Launched in 2014, the Resilient Miraloma Park initiative is a community-driven disaster planning program. Building on the framework of the City’s Empowered Communities Program, the residents of Miraloma Park created a steering committee that organized a series of five workshops that educated community members about the risks their community faced as well as offered exercises that helped generate goals and objectives for the community to follow in the years to come.

UPDATES & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Block Champion

The NEN Block Champion Program is part of a comprehensive effort to identify both existing and emerging leaders and provide them with the programs, resources and technical support to both address the day to day challenges before them as well as contribute to preparing our City to thrive in a new world climatically.

Nested in the NEN’s Empowered Communities Program, and building on the success of the 2017 Neighborfest Campaign, the Block Champion Program will generate an essential layer of connection and capacity at the community level that we as a municipality will need to advance our mitigation, preparedness, response and restoration / recovery strategies. See more about the Block Champion Program here.

About Us

Background

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.

Leadership

Coming Soon.

Miraloma Park Hub

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.
