If you are new to our community, welcome! I hope that I get a chance to meet you in person at one of our volunteering events, classes and workshops, or social events. We're growing more impactful with every new parent and child that joins. Need proof? Check out our impact in numbers!
Community Impact LAB grew out of a desire to create opportunities for parents to address inequity and injustice, to pursue new ventures, develop skills, and to build a village of compassionate families. We needed a space where parents and their children felt empowered and effective. And I'm really proud to say that we're doing it!
We're showing how impactful each one of us can be. Through the combined efforts of hundreds of volunteers over $200,000 worth of in-kind donations have been collected, packaged, and distributed to help resettled refugees, teen mothers, homeless women and children, undocumented youth, and other marginalized populations. And we've done it all with our children in tow.
We appreciate the shared commitment that nonprofits and community leaders have in reaching out to populations in need. We have been fortunate enough to reach hundreds of families through our collaborations with the following change-maker organizations:
Building Futures With Women and Children
IRC in Northern California
Davis Street Resource Center
Bay Area Crisis Nursery
KIND (Kids in Need of Defense)
Love Never Fails
No One Left Behind: San Francisco Chapter
Carry the Future
Katie McKee, Midwife at Highland Hospital
Courageous Women Association
San Leandro Improvement Association
City of San Leandro
We have been honored to help them deepen their impact and we're looking forward to doing even more this year. There's plenty to do, and we're stronger together.
