The St. Vincent de Paul West Oakland Women's Center is located in one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Northern California and provides direct assistance to women and children in need. It is a safe and welcoming environment where women can come in for a warm shower, to do their laundry, us e the toilets and feel that they are in a safe and welcoming area.

We also provide a play area so their children are able to be in a safe and fun environment while their mother is able to take care of whatever it is she needs to do.
