Organization Description: 

The Hunters Point Family (HPF) is a three-program collaborative serving youth in the Hunters Point/Harbor, Third Street, and Double Rock communities. The primary targeted population is "at-risk/high-risk" youth ages 10 and up who reside in public housing in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood. HPF has two co-ed programs (Bayview Safe Haven, Peacekeepers), one gender-specific program (Girls 2000), and two gender specific Youth Leadership Development Institutes to meet the specific needs of the youth. The HPF agency provides comprehensive youth development services within an extended family model. Services are individualized and include intensive case management, conflict resolution/mediation, individual/group counseling, educational guidance and school tracking, life-skills and computer-skills training, leadership development and community service, environmental gardening internship programs, job training and readiness programs, cultural enrichment classes and outings, and recreational activities. HPF runs an organic garden that gives kids the opportunity to learn about gardening, nutrition, recycling, and more. Produce is sold at a local farmers market. HPF also sponsors Bread Me Out Records, a recording company that educates at-risk boys on rap music production and performance, business basics, and more.
