BECOME A DIFFERENCE MAKER!
The Oak Center Cultural Center is in need of your help as we open our doors to provide programs for children and families in West Oakland and the greater Oakland area. Our organization is actively trying to create solutions and solve problems within our community. Currently one of our focuses is to provide educational tools for families with children 0 to 5 years of age. We were honored to open our doors in 2017 to a FREE community playgroup called SPARK. Spark enabled families mornings of parent-child-teacher engagement from circle times, to music, reading, to the arts and crafts projects healthy snacks and more. In 2018 we were pleased to serve the community by providing quality childcare, opening the doors to our non-profit infant, toddler, and preschool program. Due to COVID-19, the program was closed. However, starting in January 2022, OCCC will partner with Diamond Little People Academy to bring quality care for ages 3 months - 3 years old!
For four decades, the OCCC has served thousands of families, residents, businesses, organizations, artists, severely economically disadvantaged individuals, families, community activists, political events, schools, and veterans. Our board members and volunteers have worked many hours to help the community thrive via filling the voids that the stresses of poverty create. We pride ourselves on our diversity, cultural wealth, and enriching collaborations. Some of our greatest memories in serving our community include feeding those in need, providing gifts for children during the holiday season, performance art classes, providing G.E.D. courses, servicing at-risk youth, and mentoring. Our desire to see our vision come to fruition will be difficult without the support of people in our community like you. Please consider making a monetary donation to our center enabling our programs to continue to serve so many in need.
