Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) is investing in people’s lives. San Francisco’s Mission District has always been a supportive place for low-income and immigrant Latinos. It’s now one of the most unaffordable neighborhoods in the country. In fact, 8,000 Latinos have been forced from their homes in the last decade — that’s over 25 percent of this community. MEDA is using our 40+ years of experience to keep Latinos and working families 
in the Mission District and help them thrive. MEDA creates opportunity for habitually underresourced families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. MEDA is also committed to maintaining the cultural identity and enhancing the resources of the Mission District, as we help every student achieve and every family succeed as the lead agency of the Mission Promise Neighborhood. Mission Rooted in the Mission and focused on San Francisco, MEDA’s mission is to strengthen low- and moderate-income Latino families by promoting economic equity and social justice through asset building and community development. Vision MEDA envisions generations of Latino families with sufficient assets to thrive. Inspired by the past and present life of the Mission District, families are rooted in vibrant, diverse and forward-thinking communities, have opportunities to grow, and are actively engaged in the civic and political life of their neighborhoods and the institutions that affect their lives. MEDA's core values are: Community-Focused We do work that addresses the actual needs of our community. We ensure that our services add real value 
and are provided in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner. Collaborative We do work in partnership with others for greater impact. We understand that our community has multiple needs and harness the collective expertise of staff, community groups, clients and other stakeholders to address those needs holistically. Adaptive Leadership We operate and succeed in situations where there are no answers, set procedures or adequate strategies that have been developed. Given the circumstances, we organize our volunteers, staff, board and partners to work together, problem solve and find new solutions that will succeed. Impact-Driven We embrace a data-driven culture and measure and communicate our impact. Our results-driven approach builds stronger relationships with the community and other stakeholders and leads to greater change in the community we serve. We assess the needs of the community and evaluate the effectiveness of our services to remain relevant and impactful. Fairness and Equity We value equity and fairness in how we work together, in our relations with our community and in the society we aim to help create. Our efforts toward fairness and equity empower our community to thrive.
