Welcome to Resilient Lakeshore!

COVID-19 Response Center


If you live in one of the 1,200 homes between Inverness and Lakeshore Drive, south of Sloat Boulevard and north of Lake Merced, you are a Lakeshore resident. Lowell High School, Lakeshore Elementary and the Lakeshore Plaza physically define our neighborhood. But our wonderfully diverse residents make Lakeshore come alive as a special place. We also care for each other, which is the mission of the Resilient Lakeshore program. There are risks to living in our geographic area. Disasters like earthquakes and fires are to be expected. Then there is the unexpected, like the coronavirus pandemic. The Resilient Lakeshore program is how we can be organized as a neighborhood to help each when challenges arise. Preparedness will ensure our most vulnerable residents are taken care of. The program is run by volunteers who live in the neighborhood. There is a role for everyone. Together we can ensure Lakeshore remains safe, healthy and resilient.

About Us


Resilient Lakeshore was started in March 2020 in response to the coronavirus pandemic and shelter in place order. While the pandemic was the immediate focus, Resilient Lakeshore will also plan for expected disasters like earthquakes.
