Bayview Mission is a Special Mission of the Episcopal Diocese of California with strong support from Grace Cathedral. It provides much-needed services, food and supplies to residents of the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhoods. Bayview Mission has adapted throughout this unprecedented and challenging time in our world and continues to serve our local community with love and dedication.
About Bayview Mission
Where is it?
Bayview Mission is housed on a residential block in a Victorian home at 1547 Jerrold Avenue in San Francisco. We are easily accessible on public transportation including the SF Muni T Line (stop is Third Street/Kirkwood/LaSalle).
When is it?
Bayview Mission is currently open every Monday in continued service to local residents in need until the crisis is over.
On Mondays from 9 – 11 am, we will fill bags with food, diapers, toiletries and other supplies (as available) for our families with infants and toddlers in addition to seniors.
How do I get involved?
For those who wish to donate, we are currently accepting:
- New socks for adults
- New socks for children
- Baby wipes
- New/unused baby clothing (onesies, etc.) and baby blankets
- Diapers and training pants
- Toenail clippers/manicure kits for adults
- Dental supplies: toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss
- Unused/unopened toiletries
- New towels and washcloths
- New boxed toys such as Legos, arts & crafts kits, science-inspired toys, etc.
It is also our hope to provide families with paper towels, toilet paper, facial tissue, soap, detergent, adult socks, and non-toxic cleaning supplies. If you are in a position to bring some of these supplies to Bayview Mission, our families would be very grateful. Lastly, we collect for the holidays throughout the year, and handmade Christmas cards are a welcome donation!

Let’s work together as a community to stay safe and healthy.
