Mission Statement

The objective and purpose of Northern California Compassion Network (NCCN) is to provide material assistance to those in need in Oakland primarily and to a lesser extent greater Alameda County through the development of a food distribution center, afterschool tutorial and recreational program, and mentoring assistance for at-risk youth. We are a consortium of programs that prioritize serving the community over seeking a profit, our programs include:

  • Robert Allen Mercy House (food distribution)
  • School Street Center (afterschool program)
  • Fire Exchange Youth (Livermore mentoring program)

Description

Robert Allen Mercy House provides wholesome, nutritious food to unemployed, underemployed, and homeless residents of Alameda County. Located in a former corner grocery store we serve our community five days a week, Monday - Friday. Various agencies such as Alameda County Social Services; Highland Hospital; the American Red Cross, and the Oakland Police and Fire Departments refer clients to us. The Alameda Community Food Bank refers clients through their Emergency Food Hotline.

School Street Center strives to elevate the academic competency of the children in our community by providing homework help, tutoring, and mentoring. School Street Center provides young people a safe place in their community to connect with caring adults, strengthen their family relationships and improve their overall skills, academically, socially and physically.

We are seeking funding for a quality, results-oriented, after school program with an emphasis in reading and math, for students in 2nd-5th grade. We serve up to 75 low-income inner-city children providing a safe, nurturing, educational environment. The program provides tutorial and homework assistance, recreation, enrichment activities and character development, in coordination with Oakland Unified School District curriculum.
