Our Mission

Dolores Street Community Services nurtures individual wellness and cultivates collective power among low-income and immigrant communities to create a more just society.


Our Vision

We envision a vibrant and diverse San Francisco where multiple cultures, life experiences and contributions are honored, and all people live with dignity and hope. Our vision is of a just and sustainable community where all residents – regardless of income, immigration or health status – have equal rights and access to resources, and are empowered to fully participate in shaping the City’s future.


Our Values


Those who are the most marginalized by our society have a right to build community and access resources for a healthy life



Shared experiences create connections that build power for common struggles


Redistributed Power

People most affected by injustice should be leaders in creating solutions


Finding strength in individual struggles gives rise to transformative change



All people have intrinsic value and make unique contributions to our neighborhood and city
