    Dogpatch neighbors need a communal space with no barriers to entry. A place without any particular creed, that embraces all our cultures. Some space to meet, to talk, to sing, to be quiet, to debate, to laugh, to perform, to get to know one another, to listen.

    We call this place the Dogpatch Hub

  • the Hub Concept

    The Hub is a "third place"--it will be built with the intention to foster community engagement, civic encounters and the connection and intersection of population sectors traditionally unlikely to interact. The Hub will offer opportunities for healthy debate as well as educational and informative programming and services for all segments of our population.

    FAQ and More

    What is the Hub?

    Essentially it's a new community living room...

    The Dogpatch Hub will be the first ever community-serving, publicly accessible neighborhood facility in Dogpatch. The Central Waterfront lacks community serving spaces, and the most rapid population growth since WWII only makes this need more acute.

    Where will the Hub be built?

    1278 Minnesota Street!

    We are preparing to open the Hub in Q1 2023.

    When will the Hub be built?

    We hope to open by 2023...

    2023. We are working to finalize the lease and develop the interior plan for the space at 1278 Minnesota. Join our effort and make a donation today.

    Who is working on the Hub project?

    Dogpatch & Potrero community leaders and resident volunteers

    Friends of Dogpatch Hub, a nonprofit public charity, formed in 2016 in response to the growing challenges affecting the Dogpatch community in the face of the extraordinary development boom. Our goal is to bring necessary and lacking public amenities to our neighborhood by working with the City, local developers and our community.

    Hub Goals:

    By building the Hub we can:

    + Offer critical neighborhood services and much-needed programming to a community that has been historically under-served despite the benefits promised in the 2008 Eastern Neighborhood rezoning.


    + Bring together an increasingly diverse community that is on track to quintuple its population by 2025, to weave together a new community fabric.


    + Stabilize our neighborhood by supporting working families with local, quality youth programming, and in so doing help to keep them in San Francisco–a city with the lowest rate of children per capita in the U.S.

    Give the Gift of Community

    It will take everyone's support to build a thriving neighborhood hub. Every dollar counts and demonstrates our community’s collective commitment towards this project. Donations are securely processed by Paypal.
