Our Mission

Oakland Unite is a public safety collaboration of community-based organizations, public agencies, and residents using proven and effective means to reduce violence in Oakland.  All Oakland Unite’s programs target Oakland’s highest risk community members and neighborhoods, with a particular focus on interrupting violence now as it is occurring and preventing future violence. Based in the Human Services Department, Oakland Unite is funded by tax-payer dollars and has brought in over $15 million in state and federal grants to support the local investment in violence intervention and prevention. Oakland Unite programs have provided intensive interventions to over 4,000 individuals per year and reached over 17,000 people in Oakland through outreach and community events annually.
