Mission Hiring Hall (MHH) was established in 1971 as part of the Mission Coalition of Organizations, a grass roots organization formed to address the social and economic conditions in the Mission district of San Francisco. MHH continues this legacy by providing residents with a full range of employment services, including job readiness training, job counseling, case management, job placement and support service referrals. In 1990, based on the success of providing employment services in the Mission community, and at the request of several neighborhood organizations from the South of Market area of San Francisco, MHH established the South of Market Employment Center (SOMEC). Today, MHH remains a staple service in these two economically impacted neighborhood corridors of San Francisco, 16th Street in the Mission district and 6th Street in the South of Market area. Through these two locations MHH also serves low-income residents from every district of San Francisco with the same vital, culturally sensitive employment services.
