SERVING OUR COMMUNITY

Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin community, the Bay Area Women’s and Children’s Center is a multi-faceted resource center with a dual purpose.

Our Direct Services Program assists families, children, and women in addressing their immediate needs.

Our Advocacy/Community Planning Program does local and citywide educational work, advocacy, and planning on issues critical to low-income children and families.

BAWCC also works on related neighborhood development and long-term community projects identified by low-income families, youth, and women.  This includes efforts such as the campaign BAWCC spearheaded and led for the creation of the Tenderloin Community Elementary School and on-site Family Center, the Tenderloin Recreation Center, and five playgrounds in the Tenderloin and SF Civic Center.
