MEDA Hosts Housing and Community-Development Professionals in the Mission District During National Conference

The first week of May marked a significant event in San Francisco as more than 1,400 housing and community development professionals from across the country participated in the NeighborWorks America Training Institute. This event provided an excellent opportunity for professionals to learn from one another and share best practices in the field.

As a chartered member of NeighborWorks America, the Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) had the privilege of hosting activities during the week-long event, including three tours of the Mission District. Members of our staff led the tours and provided visitors with an overview of our cradle-to-career and place-based service models. During these tours, attendees had the opportunity to witness, firsthand, the impact of MEDA’s efforts in preserving and building affordable housing, supporting small business development, promoting cultural placekeeping, fostering asset building, and advocating for policy change.

 It was an honor for MEDA to showcase our community’s vibrance and resilience to fellow professionals and visitors from all corners of the United States. Through events like the NeighborWorks America Training Institute, we in the community development industry can come together and learn from one another, share successes, and continue to build a brighter future for underserved communities across the country. MEDA is committed to the ongoing work of community development, and we look forward to collaborating with other organizations to create lasting change for those who need it most.
