What is a Pop-Up Resource Village?


Pop-Up Resource Village is a creative site activation project that invites mobile resources to “pop-up”on a regular basis to create a village of civic resources for under resourced communities so they can thrive.

Eliminating Barriers


The Pop-up Resource Village addresses the lack of access to resources through the creation of mobile and temporary structures that eliminate the economic and social isolation many communities face by bringing education, resources, and entrepreneurship opportunities directly to them.

Gathering Places


In eliminating these barriers, the Pop-Up Resource Village seeks to reduce recidivism, improve social cohesion and increase in public safety using the power of creative placemaking.

Designing Justice + Designing Spaces

At Designing Justice + Designing Spaces (DJDS) we believe that the built environment embodies many of our society’s gross inequities. Through our innovations in architecture and real estate development, we seek to end the crisis caused by mass incarceration by supporting re-entry and diversion programs and practices. With our non-profit, government and community partners, we co-create new prototypes such as peacemaking centers, mobile classrooms, and housing for foster age youth. Together, we harness the power of the built environment to create triple bottom line equity and support the success and expansion of restorative justice, education, and workforce development programs.  Learn more.

Five keys schools and programs

Founded by the SF Sheriff's department in 2003, the Five Keys Charter School was founded as a solution to studies showing that increased academic achievement is one of the most reliable predictors of reducing recidivism. The five Keys are education, Employment, Recovery, Family, and Community. Five Keys Charter School offers a high quality education to inmates in the San Francisco jails, as well as in the Los Angeles in-custody facilities. Their programs are helping thousands of students to get high school diplomas, GED’s, jobs, and life skills training. Learn more.
