The Organization: Collective Impact – Founded in 2007, Collective Impact’s mission is to provide people and programs with the tools they need to succeed. We believe we are all connected and if we work together we can develop critical solutions to the issues facing our community. Based out of the historic Ella Hill Hutch Community Center in the Western Addition, Collective Impact serves as an anchor institution and a safe haven for children, youth and families.

Through all of our work and the programs we serve, we annually improve the lives of over 2,000 chronically disadvantaged people.
The Program: Dream Keeper Initiative – In June 2020, following the killing of George Floyd, Mayor Breed and Board of Supervisors President Shamann Walton announced a plan to prioritize the redirection of resources from law enforcement to support the African-American community. The Dream Keeper Initiative is the result of that plan. The Dream Keeper Initiative is a new, citywide effort to reinvest $120 million over the next two years from law enforcement into San Francisco’s Black and African American community. This Initiative is part of Mayor London N. Breed’s roadmap for reforming public safety and addressing structural inequities in San Francisco. The first $60 million of the Dream Keeper Initiative for Fiscal Year 2020-21 will go towards some of the programs that we provide at Collective Impact: Youth Development and Education, City Employment Pipelines, Workforce Training and Development, Business and Entrepreneur Support, Health and Wellbeing, Housing and Homeownership.
