Beyond Emancipation

Wish List

Donated items provide youth with the things they need to transition into adulthood.

To donate items, please contact Julia Lakes at (510) 667-7686 or jlakes@beyondemancipation.org. While we appreciate your donations very much, we cannot accept them without prior arrangements. Thank you for your understanding.

Food Pantry

Many of our clients know first-hand what it is like to experience hunger. We keep a small pantry in our office stocked with nonperishable, single-serve, easy to prepare food items so that when a youth tells us they haven’t eaten lately, we can offer them a little something.


If you’d like to make a starter kit of basic toiletries for youth, please contact Julia Lakes at (510) 667-7686 or jlakes@beyondemancipation.org for a full list of items.
