THE FINAL PHASE: REBUILDING VACCEB, organized by Andrew Vo

In the short months following the fire, a resounding number of community partners have helped us surmount the emergency costs of debris containment, safety testing, and storage space for our Mobile Meal Program inventory. We would like to express sincere appreciation and gratitude to all who have so generously shared in our short-term recovery; we would not have been able to rebound as quickly without your support. Your endorsement is a testament to the strength of our community in the face of fires, AAPI-focused news coverage, and the changing landscape of our beloved Oakland. We greatly look forward to hosting you at future community events.

Before that can come to fruition, however, VACCEB still very much needs your help in braving the building’s reconstruction. We envision a rebuild of both internal and external features that were razed by the fire, namely electricity and plumbing; the roof; a computer lab; an ESL teaching space; and restrooms so that we may resume proper wraparound services for our East Bay residents. We’re once again counting on you to help us create a space where everyone may continue to teach, exchange cultures, and stride forward.

In the recent events of Anti-Asian xenophobia, especially underscored by the Atlanta-area spa attacks, VACCEB is mourning with the Asian community. We are mourning over those whom we’ve lost to Anti-Asian hate crimes. We honor the women who were murdered in the Atlanta-area spa shootings in the name of White supremacy: Soon C. Park, age 74; Hyun J. Grant, age 51; Suncha Kim, age 69; Yong A. Yue, age 63; Delaina Ashley Yaun, age 33; Paul Andre Michels, age 54; Xiaojie Tan, age 49; Daoyou Feng, age 44.

Since COVID-19, there has been a significant increase in Anti-Asian hate crimes. According to the New York Times, there have been approximately 3,800 reports of Anti-Asian related cases. However, Anti-Asian hate is not new and is embedded in American history. “As deep as our roots may be in American soil, we are still viewed as foreign” - #DiversifyOurNarrative

There is strength in numbers. We need to stand in solidarity, not only as an Asian Community, but also within our united communities of color. Protect one another by having important conversations, educating ourselves and others on Anti-Asian hate, and volunteering and/or donating to AAPI organizations. VACCEB will continue to serve as a bastion against racial intolerance, and we firmly believe that we can rise above the current climate in unity. #STOPAAPIHATE together.

We are hurt, we are grieving, we are enraged, we are fearful, but we are in this TOGETHER.

Hi there! I wanted to pass this along in case there's some Vietnamese members and PG&E customers who can be surveyed for about an hour in exchange for $100.
There are times when families are unable to care for their loved ones. This is when becoming a Family Home Provider can make a big difference in someone’s life. Do you have an extra bedroom and a heart for helping others? Melba Castellano is a Family Home Provider. She and her partner, Domingo DaRosa, opened their home to two gentlemen with developmental disabilities. Both Melba and Domingo’s families emigrated to America, often needing the support of others to help them build successful and happy lives. They feel blessed, and wanted to give back to those less fortunate in their community. Melba states that even though there can be difficult times, she and Domingo have experienced love, trust, and appreciation in return for opening their home to others. Enriching Lives is a Family Home Agency which certifies members of the community as Family Home Providers to provide care and supervision to adult Individuals with developmental disabilities such as Epilepsy, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Intellectual Disabilities, and Traumatic Brain injury. Family Home Providers receive a monthly stipend and can serve up to 2 Individuals in their home at a time. Family Home Providers come from all different ethnic backgrounds, education, neighborhoods, and family constellations. They receive an initial week-long orientation, on-going continuing education and professional support. The most important quality of a Family Home Provider is a commitment to the well-being and personal growth of the Individuals they serve. Ronda Gardner had been a foster parent for many years before becoming a Family Home Provider for Enriching Lives. She has cared for 6 Individuals with developmental disabilities since joining the program. Ronda states that they share meals together, attend community events together, and many of them have attended church with her. “ I would recommend becoming a Provider as it is a good way to help someone else, and to offset the high cost of living in the Bay area at the same time.” Enriching Lives has a need for all types of caregivers, and a special need for bi-lingual homes that speak Vietnamese and Cantonese – as well as homes who are familiar with American Sign Language. Family Home Providers also need to have average computer skills. Do you have an extra bedroom and a heart for helping others? For more information and to register for a live, phone or virtual Information Session, please contact Paula Meyer at our Enriching Lives Office at 925-344-4565 or visit our website at
