Oakland Family Resource Center



The Oakland FRC operates as an important hub for family and community life. Located in the heart of East Oakland, the FRC aims to provide a safe, trusted place where community members receive support and advocacy to navigate and access a myriad of resources. By offering programs and services in one location that educate and support parents, children, and youth, the Oakland FRC helps strengthen families and build healthier neighborhoods.
