Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Filipino American Development Foundation (FADF) seeks to support the Filipino community, prioritizing low-income Filipino immigrants and longtime residents of San Francisco's South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood. The foundation developed the Bayanihan Community Center (BCC), and master leases BCC from TODCO, the current owner and manager of 1010 Mission Street. The collection includes materials relating to the SOMA Filipino community and Filipino activism, redevelopment of 1010 Mission Street, fundraising and grant materials, and publications. Media types include papers, floppy disks and photographs.
The Filipino American Development Foundation (FADF) is a nonprofit which aims to strengthen the social, physical, and economic wellbeing of the Filipino American and South of Market communities, focusing on underserved members of said communities. Founded by Mario Borja, M.D. (1997) with a vision to provide an inclusive space for Filipino immigrants, FADF brings together services to enhance the economic, health, legal, educational and cultural needs of the community.
