In 2018, a cohort of Noe Valleyians launched Resilient Noe Valley. With the support of Supervisor Mandelman’s Office and a grant from the Walter & Elise Haas Fund, we set out to provide the community with preparedness trainings and a Resilience Action Plan that will protect our community in times of stress.
But that's not all! We believe connected communities are resilient communities, so our biggest focus has always been on bringing neighbors together - whether that's by providing assistance during a pandemic, or throwing a preparedness-themed block party. We hope you'll come join us!
Our philosophy is simple - we believe in neighbors helping neighbors
Our goal is to build a robust local cross-sector network of organizations and civic networks committed to making meaningful and sustained investments at the individual, organizational and community levels to ensure that Noe Valley remains a generous, thriving and equitable place to live, work and visit.
We want Noe Valley to be a friendly, diverse, progressive community comprised of families, seniors and people with varied socio-economic conditions that works in an inclusive, consensus-driven manner to ensure everyone’s day-to-day resilience goals are supported.
