What a difference a day makes! Our Community Impact Committee is designed to tackle short-term community needs of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties which require volunteers for a single day. The activities most sought are those directly supporting the JLOEB mission of helping families achieve self-sufficiency. More...
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.

Community Enrichment Fund Grants
We recognize community needs come in all shapes and sizes. While a significant amount of our community impact is realized through the League's volunteer and leadership efforts, we have also been fortunate enough to recognize some community needs through the funding of Community Enrichment Fund (CEF) grants. These grants are awarded in areas where a financial gift is determined to be of vastly greater benefit to the agency or organization than traditional volunteer support. More...
