2020 Career Development and Economic Empowerment Program - CANCELLED

Effective immediately, our Career Development and Economic Empowerment Program 2020 Cohort, has been cancelled due to the recent Coronavirus (Covid-19) that has greatly affected our society.
It is with great difficulty and sadness, that we must cancel until further notice. The health and safety of our facilitators, staff, and participants are our greatest concern, and we would deeply regret should anyone be directly or indirectly impacted by this pandemic.
Our organization wants to ensure the highest measure of safety for everyone.
We would still like to provide our participants with ongoing support and assistance. You are welcome to join Katie Maloney, our Alumni staff, at the Oakland Public Library on Saturdays from 10a-12p, to assist with computer and resume questions, or mock interviews by phone. Please email: for more information.


In light of the mandatory Alameda County Curfew policy, as well as the Covid-19 Shelter-in-Place, our Sister2Sister support groups will temporarily be held online through a web conference on Google Meet. If you would like to attend, or for more information on exploring other options, please email us at
Our Sister2Sister support groups are for women, young girls, and/or gender identity/expressive people who are victims and survivors of violence, homelessness, sexual assault, incarceration, human trafficking, and addiction. In addition, we serve family and friends who want to learn more ways on how to better support loved ones impacted by trauma. Click here to download a copy of our brochure.
This program is held each Thursday from 6:00pm - 7:15pm
Please email us at, to sign up or schedule a 1:1 appointment. We welcome you with open arms.
Judgment free zone, as we all have stories or lived experiences of trauma.
