Our

Impact

CLOSING THE GAP

 

Historically, communities of color experience higher levels of poverty, homelessness, mental health issues and food insecurity. These communities also experience significant disparities in education and extracurricular activity access; this remains true today in East Oakland. At EOBA all of the families we serve live at or below the poverty line and nearly 90% of the 650 youth we serve annually are youth of color.

 

 

At EOBA we believe every child should have the opportunities and resources needed to thrive regardless of their economic status. Our commitment to closing the opportunity gap by providing academic support and supporting the emotional, mental, and physical wellness of the youth we serve remains our top priority.
