I fell in love with Lakeview when Paradise Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Rev. Raymond Howard, Sr. became more than a place of worship. The whole church saved my life when they gave me a place to stay, provided on-the-job training, made sure I had food and the church mothers' rallied around me to LOVE and even babysat my son. It's beyond worship and the four walls
This community is my home and I love its rich history of community leaders and resilience. I enjoy working side by side with neighbors, community members and community nonprofits in keeping the OMI/Lakeview a gem in San Francisco.
