Elizabeth Clarisse Lange, known as Mother Mary Lange, foundress of the Oblate Sisters of Providence, was born in 1784 and died February 3, 1882. The Oblates, based in Baltimore, Maryland, were the first U.S.-based religious order of women of color. Her portrait, by Rev. Peter William Gray, P.S.S., a priest of St. Sulpice, hangs in the chapel of St. Mary’s on Paca Street, where Mother Lange professed her vows in 1829.

“This is not a silver bullet. And I think what we all know is it is one thing, and very important, to address the critical challenges that come up when folks become homeless. But it is infinitely cheaper and easier to keep people housed.” - Our CEO Fred Blackwell on lessons from #KeepOaklandHoused.

Pleased to see the progress resulting from working together to prevent homelessness through Keep Oakland Housed. We hear the stories repeatedly of senior citizens who become priced out of their homes when ownership turns over, or when a job loss makes it harder to keep up with rising rents on a fixed income. Through programs like Keep Oakland Housed, people get the help they need to stay in the community they call home. #KOH East Bay Community Law Center Bay Area Community Services (BACS) City of Oakland - Local Government Kaiser Permanente Wells Fargo Bank #HousingisaHumanRight #Oakland San Francisco Foundation

"It’s very important to address the critical challenges of homelessness, but it’s infinitely cheaper and easier to keep people housed," our CEO, Fred Blackwell, said this morning when we announced that one of our programs, Keep Oakland Housed, has helped 2,100 households from becoming homeless in our first 15 months of operations.

CCUSA is extremely disappointed in the U.S. Supreme Court’s unprecedented ruling in favor of the Administration’s revisions to the “public charge” rule, which harms families, targets lawful immigrants and could prevent families from receiving vital nutrition and housing assistance.

Prevention is key. Proud partner in #keepoaklandhoused

Prevention is one of the major cures of homelessness. In Alameda County, 3 people fall into homelessness for every 1 person who gets out of homelessness.

Are you living in Oakland and facing eviction? BACS is part of the Keep Oakland Housed (KOH) collaborative, and our goal is to prevent homelessness before it starts. Learn more at https://www.bayareacs.org/keep-oakland-housed/

We are grateful that there is increasing conversation about sex trafficking, and who is impacted by it. We’ve also learned at Day Star that once people are informed, it is important that they know how they can help. In collaboration with @alamedacountyda, Nancy O’Malley, Day Star has created Trafficking Awareness Cards. We have found these to be particularly helpful for Lyft/Uber drivers, barbershops, and places where trafficking may come up in conversation. The cards include potential signs of trafficking and local resources available to those impacted by it. We have a limited quantity available for community members, and orgs working with youth. Email [email protected] to request cards while supplies last.

Good advice for flu season
12/30/2019
Roots Community Health Center

Good advice for flu season

Well, we're about halfway through flu season and we hope you've avoided it so far! Here's a well-done article that gives a general timeline of flu symptoms, what to worry (and not worry) about, potential complications, and when to head to the doctor.

Of course the best thing to do is not get it - or spread it - in the first place! So wash hands frequently, do the elbow cough, wipe down common surfaces, eat nutritious foods, and drink plenty of water. And talk to your doctor about whether the flu shot is right for you.

We light the only pink candle on the third week of Advent. The third Sunday is also called Guadete Sunday, from the Latin meaning “rejoice.” The pink candle is known as the Shepherd’s Candle. Imagine the shepherd’s joy as they witnessed the glory of Angels on that miraculous night.
