In 2015, a cohort of organizations along San Francisco’s famed Brotherhood Way reached out to Supervisor Norman Yee’s office for support in creating a disaster resilience plan for their community. The Supervisor’s Office reached out and partnered with the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) to leverage its expertise in supporting communities as they draft and implement culturally competent Resilience Action Plans. By implementing its Empowered Communities Program (ECP), the NEN was able to support the Brotherhood Way stakeholders in developing a preliminary community engagement plan. This plan outlined the need to partner with surrounding communities in order to ensure that any plans that are generated accommodate all of the stakeholders along the Brotherhood Way Corridor.

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.
The Brotherhood Way community takes a leadership role in advancing its resilience by empowering all community members and organizations to identify and collectively achieve their resilience goals with an emphasis on equity, compassion, and trust.
Every resident has the capacity to care for themselves and their neighbors during times of stress.
The faith-based organizations, businesses, non-profits and community organizations of the Brotherhood Way corridor have the capacity to support both the needs of their existing constituencies, and emerging audiences, during times of stress.
The Brotherhood Way corridor has the capacity to respond collectively during times of stress in a manner that reflects the goals and priorities of its residents and stakeholder organizations.
HUB Members are a vital part of each community’s HUB development. Each member is a member of the community or a partner institution that has shown an interest in and dedication to advancing the resilience of the Bayview community.
Pursuant to the resilience development principles of the NEN’s Empowered Communities Program, the investment at the organizational level along the Brotherhood Way Corridor will help ensure that they will not only be able to meet their immediate internal needs during times of stress, but also be better positioned to meet the needs of the surrounding community.
