Beyond Emancipation


Some young people come to B:E with literally only the clothes on their back.

You can make sure these young people start each day with a warm meal and have the supplies they need to take care of themselves.

Purchase items from B:E’s Amazon Wish List here.

If you prefer to purchase items and deliver them to B:E’s East Oakland headquarters, please contact development@beyondemancipation.org to arrange delivery.


Welcome baskets

Many young people move into B:E housing with only a duffle bag of clothes. You can make sure that ever young person is met with a welcome basket of basic toiletries and supplies to make them feel at home. Assembling welcome baskets is a fun activity to do with coworkers, friends or your church or civic group. For a list of welcome basket items, contact development@beyondemancipation.org.
