The Potrero Hill Neighborhood House (PHNH) affectionately known in the community as "The Nabe" was founded in 1907 and has served the local community ever since. Our organization inhabits a 97 year-old Historical Landmark Building, designed by the renowned Julia Morgan. The Nabe was originally created to help new immigrants living on the Hill and especially those displaced by the 1906 earthquake.
Over 115 years later the Nabe continues to serve, strengthening community life and individual well-being among Potrero Hill and southeast San Francisco residents. We offer free or very low-fee services to best serve the underrepresented community that seeks our services. The Nabe also offers a variety of spaces for events, including a mid-sized theater with city and bay views, a recently renovated gymnasium as well as smaller rooms. These spaces are available for private and professional use and revenues from these rentals provide funding for our services and programs.
Between globalization, technological development, and construction -- the Potrero Hill neighborhood, city of San Francisco, and the businesses and people that live here are changing rapidly. The Nabe has developed many strategic partnerships with not only government agencies but also community organizations and companies aimed at doing good to increase security for the children, adults, and families most impacted by these changes.
With the addition of STEM Saturday to our programming we see an opportunity to further connect and build relationships within this ecosystem while serving and expanding opportunities for our community.
