Message from the Executive Director

What I love about the holiday season is the feeling of hope that it instills in each of us. It reminds us that even in these tough times, there is much to be thankful for. I am proud to share with you Asian Neighborhood Design’s accomplishments over the past year.

Because of your support in 2010, Asian Neighborhood Design…

moved to our current 6,400 sq. ft. space at 1245 Howard Street, while seamlessly maintaining our Architecture, Employment Training Center, and Community Planning services!

…trained 57 at-risk youth & young adults in our Employment Training Center (ETC). 86% graduated and 78% found employment within 6 months.

…revitalized & redesigned 100 affordable housing units, neighborhood centers, & childcare facilities through Architecture Services.

…empowered organizations representing 158,298 residents in the South of Market, Chinatown, and the Mission neighborhoods through Community Planning.

Your support has made a difference in the lives of individuals like Destiney Olaguibel, a recent graduate from our Employment Training Center’s “Green Construction and Solar Panel Installation Program.” Destiney was on drugs for 2 years before being arrested for possession of a controlled substance, grand theft auto, possession of drug paraphernalia, selling drugs, and violating her probation. She served 23 months in prison and learned about Asian Neighborhood Design through the Female Offenders Treatment Employment Program at Walden House which enables women to reunite with their children and make a fresh start while undergoing treatment for substance abuse.

Through AND, Destiney learned "hard skills" like safely using power and hand tools, reading a tape measure, and installing solar panels. Most importantly, she learned how to establish work-related relationships, develop communication skills, and teamwork while improving her physical and emotional health. Our staff placed Destiney in her first job installing solar panels for Real Goods Solar, which led to permanent positions at Sungevity and Skytech Solar. Now, she feels empowered to act as a positive role model for women who have histories of drug abuse and crime.

On behalf of all of us here at Asian Neighborhood Design – our staff, board, volunteers, clients and community supporters – I wanted to take this moment to THANK YOU for joining us to create true pathways out of poverty in San Francisco. I am hopeful for what the new year will bring, and look forward to keeping you updated about how your support continues to make a difference in our communities.

Happy Holidays!

Steven Suzuki, Executive Director
