09/24/2021

As a kid, I grew up with the impression that in this country, I am not wanted because I wasn’t born here. I constantly had to hear how immigrants were considered a burden because we supposedly take viable jobs from other Americans or that we take resources without making any contributions. However, I know that this is not true and as cliche as it may sound, my hurt and anger toward those who would say such things only motivated me to prove them wrong. The stereotype that immigrants come to the United States to steal jobs and ruin the country has got to be one of the most ridiculous statements I have ever heard. It always seemed bizarre to me how some people use the legal status of an individual to determine the individual’s character and worth. My community in Oakland thrives from the work of immigrants, so I can’t fully grasp the idea that people, who are hard working, are blamed for a majority of the problems in this country. Regardless of hearing those unfavorable comments, I eventually learned to block them out because the environment I grew up in has demonstrated the contrary. Everyone needs help throughout life and I’ve come to accept that there is nothing wrong with that. I used to feel ashamed that growing up I relied on the help of certain services and people. However, the silver lining is that now I can do the same for others. Although my coworkers and I are not superheroes who can solve all of our clients’ problems, I am proud knowing that my team still manages to help in at least one area of their lives. Whether it’s food security, housing assistance, employment services, or ESL classes, we all have managed to make a positive impact one way or another. There is still so much more for me to learn on how I can be of better service to others and help my community in more ways, but VACCEB has given me a great start and for that I’m thankful.

VACCEB continues to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with another Hispanic American who made history.

Rita Moreno has been a household name for decades, ever since she captivated audiences with her fierce portrayal of Anita in 1961’s West Side Story. Moreno would go on to cement her name in history by winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for the role, becoming the first-ever Hispanic American woman to win an Academy Award.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become one of the major leading voices for Hispanic Americans in politics.Since her arrival in Congress, Ocasio-Cortez’s vocal support of left-leaning ideas, including co-sponsoring the Green New Deal package to combat climate change, has made her a popular figure in progressive politics. She once again won her primary in June 2020, all but ensuring her return to Congress for a second term after the general election in November.

Rebuild VACCEB

As you may know, back in February, VACCEB lost nearly 40% of our building, where we hold various wrap-around services such as Food Security, Employment Services, Immigrant Information and Assistance, ESL & Citizenship Classes, and Senior Activities. We have been trying our best to continue to serve the community, with our resilient staff and the community's patience and unwavering support. However, with our programs' constant growth, and the community's expanding needs, we now more than ever need to #RebuildVACCEB and reoccupy our building to provide for the community to the best of our capabilities.

Please join us in our last push to fundraise what we need to #BuildBackNow! A small donation and/or a share of this video and/or our GoFundMe could make all the difference. We are humbled by the community's continuous and dedicated help. Together we can do anything! #StrengthInNumbers #CommunityIsUnity

Congratulations to 2 of our clients in our Employment Program! Working hard and taking steps to continue to be successful in their careers 👏👏👏

1. “CM from Vietnam has been working as a caregiver for the past few months and really enjoys it. So much so that she asked us to help her enroll in a CNA course so she can further her skills and develop her career in the field! Midhun at Peralta Colleges helped her enroll in ESOL and CNA courses at College of Alameda and apply for financial assistance.”

2. “N from Syria, Peru just finished their 3-month dental assistant training and completed it successfully! N has interviews with dental offices coming up.”

We’re looking forward to following them on their continued success and growth 💪 We love to see it 😍🙌

06/25/2021

“The black & white photograph was marred by water damage, yet I could still discern my mother’s faint figure kneeling at the stern of the wooden boat with hands raised to her forehead in exaltation. By the time this image was captured, Saigon had fallen, and my mother had been adrift for 36 days with a hollow stomach and spent motor. With unwavering hope, resilience, and some luck, she finally caught a glimpse of the allegorical American dream.

My life thus far has not been defined by any comparable trial, for I was born on U.S. soil with life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in my back pocket. Nevertheless, the tale behind the blemished photo establishes my history as an American and inspires my lifelong mission, whose beginning is marked by my time at VACCEB.

Early on, the community center’s significance to me rested in its founding mission to serve as a bulwark for those like my mother who set out on boats and barges for the unfamiliar. Today, on the day I depart, however, I see that VACCEB’s gravity comes from the rare space it creates for my generation to know those that precede ours. Thank you, VACCEB, for lending me the space to foster interactions that affirm my aspiration towards public service.”

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
