The mission of the Bayview Hunters Point Health and Environmental Resource Center is to promote the health & wellness of residents in low-income communities and to improve the environment where residents live & work.
Bayview Hunters Point Health and Environmental Resource Center (HERC) incorporates the Community First objective of “community involvement” in its program philosophy. HERC will utilize the African American Health Initiative’s innovative, Afro-centered approaches to motivate men to take a more active role in improving their health, the health of their families and neighborhoods. This will occur through opening community dialogue, taking a stand on issues, and pooling strengths, resources, and energy in order to reach men who may be hesitant to focus on their own health.
HERC is funded by San Francisco Department of Public Health and the San Francisco Office of the Mayor.
