Catholic Charities of the East Bay is such an important provider in both Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. From my experience researching and learning about their services, they are extremely responsive to local community needs. They bring their expertise through a broad array of programs and services to positively impact the lives of those they serve. They are also committed to continuously developing their knowledge, skills, and expertise to improve their services. I am always impressed when I have conversations with their program staff and directors.

Catholic Charities of the East Bay not only serves well those who are living on the margins with support and resources, they have also taken the initiative to focus their services to those who live in chronically traumatized communities. In doing so, CCEB is on the cutting edge with other national organizations to raise awareness and to develop services that respond to the needs of those living in chronically traumatized communities both for direct services and systemic change.

I am the Chief Program Officer at CCEB and believe that we are a leader in providing life-changing services to people in need in Alameda and Cotra Costa counties. From in-depth mental health services for Victims of Crime, their friends and family, to homelessness prevention and employment services, legal immigration services and systemic work on school reform, we work holistically with each client to move them toward self-sufficiency.
