Description

Oakland, CA – EIN 943088087 oaklandcatholicworker.org

These are our main programs:

Transitional shelter and accompaniment program. The center of our work is our guest accompaniment program. We host Latin American migrants (adults or families) who are in need of a place to stay for up to four months. New guests often find us through nearby churches that know us, family, friends, former guests, and other community organizations. In addition to providing the basic necessities of food and housing during their stay, our case management team meets with guests every week to help them to determine their goals and work to achieve them. We provide support as they save money, look for jobs and affordable housing, and access needed legal, medical, and educational services.

Hot meals program. Every Monday and Wednesday, we prepare a hot meal (usually rice, beans, fruit, and a drink), which we serve to anyone who comes by our door from 11am-2pm. We serve approximately 250-300 meals each month.

Grocery distribution. Every Thursday we distribute groceries from 11:00am to 12:30 pm, to a diverse group of people that includes English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mam, and Burmese speakers. We hand out bags or boxes of groceries to 200-300 families each week. Most of the food comes from the Alameda County Community Food Bank, and usually includes lots of fresh produce, bread, and sometimes canned goods, rice, beans, or eggs.

ESL classes. We offer free English as a Second Language classes throughout the year. Classes are normally two months long, conversational in nature, and are offered at regular intervals. We encourage everyone in our heavily Latino neighborhood to attend.

Christmas gift program. Our annual Christmas gift program serves more than 150 low-income families each year, including over 400 children (from ages infant-18). This popular event includes music and refreshments. Gifts are provided by local faith communities, schools, civic groups, and individuals.

Cultural and religious events. Throughout the year, we host and celebrate a variety of events intended to affirm our guests’ identities. These include birthdays, feast days, and memorial services. We celebrate cultural and religious events such as Día de los Muertos, Las Posadas, Vía Cruces, along with Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We host regular volunteer appreciation events to thank our many supporters.
