Dedicated to the Richmond

The Richmond Neighborhood Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the Richmond District community through our innovative youth programs at nine local schools, robust food security programs, accessible wellness classes, and community events and activities. For over 35 years, we’ve worked tirelessly to nurture this diverse San Francisco neighborhood and foster respect for all people.

Since the early 1900s, the location of The Richmond Neighborhood Center has served a wide variety of roles in the community, from a home for struggling teens to a school for the blind. We hope you’ll join us as we write the next chapter of our dynamic, thriving neighborhood.
