Mission Housing Takes Next Step in Creation of Accessory Dwelling Units


Step-by-step, Mission Housing continues to lead the affordable housing community with innovative solutions to San Francisco’s housing shortage.

Following Mayor London Breed’s 2019 Executive Order to accelerate the construction of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in the city, Mission Housing is one step closer to delivering on two units that were once garages at 3434 18th Street.


“During times such as these, in the midst of this housing shortage crisis, it’s important that every neighborhood prioritizes new housing, and thanks to Mayor Breed’s leadership we’re one step closer to solving the housing crisis,” said Sam Moss, Executive Director at Mission Housing. “Mission Housing is in the business of housing San Francisco’s low-income community not its cars.”


In 2021, Mission Housing began construction for its award-winning 3434 18th Street project ADUs. The repurposed space will provide voluntarily ADA-accessible units for persons with disabilities and/or seniors. Mission Housing is proud to share that its 18th Street ADU Garage Conversion Project is modeling a way to create new, rent-controlled housing out of dormant space.


Mission Housing plans to begin a second ADU project at 2800 Bryant Street in 2022. Combined, the properties are home to eight families and one local business and both are the beneficiaries of funds acquired from the completed buyout of the Mariposa Gardens Apartments.
