Immigrants

VACCEB is a strong partner and advocate for the refugee and immigrant communities of Alameda County. As a member of the East Bay Refugee Forum, a coalition of over thirty agencies serving the unmet needs of our community, VACCEB provides a variety of programs to ensure a sustainable and healthy integration of cultures, languages and traditions.

Among our services for the refugee and immigrant communities are ESL and citizenship classes, a domestic violence and behavioral health hotline, health screenings and workshops, case management, senior services and activities, referrals, and computer literacy classes.

Moreover, we offer a wide range of employment services to immigrants and refugees who have been in the United States fewer than five years. We help clients write and improve their resumes and train them in interviewing skills. We work with them one-on-one to find jobs suitable to their skills which match their family’s needs. Clients receive bus passes that help them go to job interviews and help them get to work sites after they obtain a job. We network with local employers to help both our clients and the employers. However, if you have lived in the United States more than five years, we have other employment services for you.
