A new wing of the Southeast Community Facility on Oakdale and Phelps was officially opened at an event attended by community members, business leaders and government officials. The “Phelps Wing” includes a conference room and classrooms with state-of-the-art education equipment.
The upgrades to the Southeast Community Facility aren’t over by a long shot.
Phase 2 planning and design for capital improvements to the rest of the facility will start in early 2014, according to a recent press release.
The Grand Opening event doubled as a housewarming for the Five Keys Charter School which now occupies space in the new Phelps Wing.
The nationally-acclaimed school creates a supportive learning environment for youth and young adults by providing access to community-based programs to grow their work skills and help them obtain their GEDs and high school diplomas.

The Facility was established by the City as a mitigation measure in return for the community’s acceptance of the Southeast Treatment Plant. The operation of the SECF is intended to further the gainful employment of residents in the Bayview Hunter’s Point community, create educational programming, and provide information and resources for the enhancement and growth for the community as a whole. The SECF Commission was established in 1987 by ordinance of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
