HERC's mission is to promote the health and wellness of residents in low-income communities and to monitor environmental issues that may be adversely affecting people's health. HERC embraces the following goals: (1) To reduce the prevalence of asthma and breast, cervical, and prostate cancer in Bayview Hunters Point by providing education, information, referral, and early detection training; and, (2) to make available to Bayview Hunters Point residents ongoing health services. HERC is one of 15 community-based organizations and institutions committed to a community-wide coalition addressing health issues in low-income communities.
The Bayview Hunters Point Health and Environmental Resource Center (HERC) is a nonprofit 501©3 corporation, established in 1998 by a group of task force members who were concerned about the high rate of pediatric asthma, as well as breast and prostate cancers, in the Bayview Hunters Point community of San Francisco. HERC's headquarters are at 828 Innes Avenue, Suite 110 in San Francisco, California. Historically, HERC has provided health services to minorities living in low-income communities, specifically offering information and education on asthma management and education how to practice early detection of breast and prostate cancer.
