The Junior League of Oakland-East Bay (JLOEB) reaches out to all women who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism. If you are interested in making a commitment to volunteering in the Oakland and East Bay area, join us at one of the following socials:
New Member Apartment Supply Drive: Make a Difference in the Life of a Foster Youth
Thank you to all of you who donated to the New Member BAYC Apartment Drive. Together, we collected more than 250 items for youth transitioning out of the foster care system. BAYC provides housing and other services to the youths at this critical point in their lives. Your donation is helping them become self-sufficient, successful adults. BAYC says this is the largest donation of its kind it has ever received.
Alameda Point Collaborative
The Junior League of Oakland-East Bay (JLOEB) is excited about its new community partner, Alameda Point Collaborative (APC). APC’s mission to enable family self-sufficiency among formerly homeless residents matches well with JLOEB’s own goals within its impact area of Family Self-Sufficiency.
APC is a supportive housing community that uses all its resources to help families and individuals break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. They are the largest supportive housing provider for homeless families in Alameda County and their wide range of services give residents the tools they need for long-term success.
JLOEB will work to support and strengthen those programs provided to the APC residents and help further their current goals. The main focus areas JLOEB will target include: growing their Workforce Development Program, increasing involvement in the Teen Center, and expanding Community Garden programs. JLOEB will also help increase awareness and understanding of APC through helping with their annual community fundraising event: Not Your Mother's Garden Party.
