The Oakland Catholic Worker is a House of Hospitality offering transitional housing (up to 4 months) to Latin American Immigrants.
In the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement, we base our ministry of service on the practice of solidarity with the poor and disenfranchised.
"I have nothing but praise and gratitude for the corporal and spiritual works of mercy carried out by the Oakland Catholic Worker in our diocese. It's an honor to have such a fine Catholic organization in our diocese."
Bishop Michael Barber, Diocese of Oakland
"The so-called 'illegals' are so not because they wish to defy the law; but, because the law does not provide them with any channels to regularize their status in our country – which needs their labor: they are not breaking the law, the law is breaking them."
Archbishop Thomas Wenski, Archdiocese of Miami
We are a community and a community center of the Latin American immigrant and refugee community with the mission of:
Living simply in a community of multicultural volunteers and guests...
Serving the people most in need in our community...
