Mission Statement

We are a community and a community center of the Latin American immigrant and refugee community with the mission of living simply and communally in a community of multicultural volunteers and guests, helping those most in need in our community, supporting an extended community in keeping itself organized and healthy, and advocating for the elimination of unjust structures locally and globally.

Description

The Oakland Catholic Worker has served as a transitional shelter and accompaniment program for Latin American refugees since 1986. In addition we serve our East Oakland neighbors in need by offering:

  • English as a Second Language classes
  • Hot food and weekly grocery distribution programs
  • A gathering space for the religious and cultural needs of our extended community
  • Advocacy promoting change with those marginalized by existing unjust political, social and economic structures
