Mei Lun Yuen
The Mei Lun Yuen housing project, located on the corner of Sacramento and Stockton Streets, opened for occupancy in 1982 after a decade-long effort by a network of advocates for low-income housing in Chinatown.
In 1972, the Rev. Harry Chuck, a staff-person at Donaldina Cameron House and a collegiate pastor at the Presbyterian Church in Chinatown, was Co-Chairperson of the Chinatown Coalition for Better Housing (CCBH) and testified before the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to the need for increased low-income housing in Chinatown.
In the year 2022, the federal HUD (Housing and Urban Development) mortgage will be paid off and the title will revert to The Mei Lun Yuen Corporation, the board of which is made up of PCC Members.
