Mary Helen Rogers Senior Community

Address: 701 Golden Gate
Phone: 415-929-5258

Chinatown CDC teamed up with community partners to develop the Mary Helen Rogers Senior Community at 701 Golden Gate Avenue at Franklin Street. Formerly home to a Central Freeway off-ramp, the site was serving as a parking lot at the time construction began. After completing construction in late 2012, the project now has 100 residential units for low and very-low income seniors, including 20 units set aside for homeless seniors under the Department of Public Health’s Direct Access to Housing Program.

The project honors the memory of Mary Helen Rogers, a long-time community activist and advocate for the Western Addition community, and the building will feature art tributes to Ms. Rogers and her legacy.

The project also features on-site services offices, a community café that will partly be programmed by the resident services team, a computer lab, offices, and a resident lobby. MHRSC forms a "senior campus" with its sister project, Parkview Terraces, at Turk and Gough. Resident programs like physical activities to help seniors remain active and fit are open to residents of each project. The café at MHRSC will host social activities, and there will be computer courses in the computer lab.

Project partners include UrbanCore LLC and the Tabernacle Community Development Corporation.
