MEDA’s free programs build generational family wealth!
Is your family next?

Since 1973, the Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) has been dedicated to the Mission community, and beyond. Two-thirds of our clients are immigrants — newcomers to San Francisco seeking a better life. MEDA is a safe, welcoming place for this community.

Every family holds dreams for increased opportunity and a better life for their children. MEDA makes those dreams a reality with our many free programs, available in English and Spanish. Free workshops and one-on-one coaching are offered.

So if you live in the neighborhood, stop by Plaza Adelante at Mission and 19th streets. If you had to leave the community but still identify with the Mission and need free services, you are always welcome. We are convenient to bus and BART lines … and we are here to help strengthen your family.

Join us as we build Latino wealth and power in the Mission, in San Francisco and as part of a national movement!

NOTE: Every client will be required to attend a Welcome Orientation and Financial Capability Workshop before they can start working with a coach. (The exception is our First-Time Homebuyers workshop clients, which is part of Housing Opportunities.)

We invite you to our Welcome Orientations:

  • English: Every Wednesday, 5:45pm-8pm in Room 211
  • Spanish: Every Wednesday, 5:45pm-8pm in Room 301E
