About Us

The Providence Foundation of San Francisco (PFSF) is the nonprofit philanthropic arm of Providence Baptist Church, a 2,000-member cornerstone of the predominately African-American Bay View Hunters Point (BVHP) community of San Francisco for 65 years. Founded by members of the congregation in 1996, the Providence Foundation obtained its 501(c)3 status September 1997 to establish programs that would help to improve the quality of the residents of the Bay View Hunters Point community. The services provided by the Foundation demonstrate a concern for community issues as well as the ability to meet community needs.

Providence Foundation's current programs offer a variety of supportive services for children, families, seniors, and the homeless in the BVHP community. While several of the programs focus on youth services, the needs of very low-income seniors, including minority seniors and the frail or disabled elderly, are the central focus of the Foundation's Senior Housing Project started in 2006, now complete and ready for occupancy of 50 low-income seniors.
