Where We Serve: Oakland

Oakland

In Oakland, ACErs are working daily to build relationships with the residents of the Fruitvale neighborhood, which they and their students call home. This relatively new site, established in 2011, is in response to the needs of the neighborhood's Latino families, who comprise the fastest growing population of the American Catholic Church.
