BAWCC’s Mission: Who We Are

Mission: Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin, BAWCC supports women and children so they can thrive.

Vision: Women and children in the Tenderloin feel safe, secure and inspired to achieve their dreams.

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.
