Dear United Roots/Youth Impact Hub Oakland Community,


Your health and well-being are our greatest concern. First, we send love to everyone who is being impacted by COVID-19, including those who have already lost loved ones, those who are isolated in quarantine, and those who are being targeted with violence and discrimination. We salute everyone who is responding to this moment with care and concern for others.


Closure through December 31, 2020 and possibly longer:

Based on the recommendations of public health officials around the world and the current Alameda County mandate, we are temporarily closing our center to the public to protect the health of youth, staff and our community. This notice may be updated or extended at any time based on what unfolds in the days ahead. We will post updates on our social media, and update this page regarding reopening the center or extending closure.


Virtual Programming & Youth Support:

  • We are currently hosting online workshops for our Youth Hub Fellowship, Design class, DeterMination and Sister 2 Sister circles.
  • We are providing stipends as well as emergency funds to youth who are experiencing financial crisis. We have dispersed over $6000 directly to youth since March 16. To donate to our emergency fund for youth, click HERE (Hyperlinked to donation page of website)


We recommend the following resources to stay healthy, updated and informed:


How you can support:

  • Make a donation to ensure that we can continue providing resources to the community during this challenging time.


Please take excellent care of yourselves and others.  


If you have any questions or want to discuss this further, please reach out to us. We are here with you.


With love,

The United Roots/ Youth Impact Hub Team

As COVID-19, more commonly referred to as the “coronavirus,” begins to make its impact in the United States, we want to take this moment to remind undocumented youth and their families to prioritize their health to the best of their abilities.

Vulnerable populations almost certainly include someone you know: your child, your parent, your neighbor, your co-worker—even you. Because of their unique needs, standard emergency resources may not be available. We must take extra steps to reduce the likelihood that vulnerable populations will suffer injury, disease, or even death.

Food is a basic human right. We work towards a stronger, more nourished Alameda County, where no one worries where their next meal will come from.
