The Spanish Speaking Citizens’ Foundation was established in 1964 by a group of visionaries dedicated to improving our community for Latino residents in Oakland. Throughout the past 49 years, our mission has remained the same: To empower community members to improve their quality of life while maintaining strong cultural relevance and tradition. Over the years, our agency has evolved into a family resource center that provides a range of services to help community members successfully integrate into society. We are proud to find ourselves serving the children and grandchildren of many of our original clients as well as welcoming newcomers to Oakland.
The mission of the Spanish Speaking Citizens’ Foundation is to help East Bay families improve their lives, embrace their heritage, and develop as civic leaders by promoting educational enrichment and civic responsibility.
Our vision is to advance the sustainability of a vibrant community where people live in harmony and where high quality educational, recreational, and employment opportunities are available to all.
