Mission SF Community Financial Center ("Mission SF") is a nationally-recognized San Francisco-based non-profit that creates, tests and scales financial products and services that promote financial security and catalyze economic mobility for low-income, low-wealth people. Mission SF employs three core activities: (1) Delivering relevant financial education and counseling paired with appropriate saving and credit-building products in varied settings; and (2) Improving access to quality financial services through new product innovation and advocacy; and (3) Building the field by gathering and sharing outcomes data, lessons and best practices. We partner closely with Community Trust, a division of Self-Help Credit Union, to integrate quality affordable financial services into our program models—often services that are not available elsewhere. Mission SF is also unique in our focus on serving people that are not well-served by other financial programs, in particular low-income youth, low-income transitional-aged youth and extremely low-income adults.
