Our mission is to empower the black and brown young adult (16-24) who live in Alameda County.
Our mission is to empower the young adult community by connecting them to their culture, inspiring hope, promoting critical thinking and cultivating creating while supporting their overall health and wellness.
The Health and Human Resource Education Center (HHREC) has been grounded in the Oakland community since 1984. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization governed by a multi-ethnic Board of Directors. HHREC is committed to improving the overall health and quality of life of Bay Area residents by reducing the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and eliminating racism and violence of all kinds. HHREC has contracted with Alameda County Department of Public Health and Behavioral Health Care Services, as well as a host of other funding partners, to plan and implement a variety of substance abuse and mental health prevention programs, and community leadership opportunities.
HHREC has blended health, art, media, and local community voices to create a community-based prevention education strategy that addresses collective physical, mental, and spiritual healing. All projects engage local residents (including children, youth, adults and elders), consumers and family members in organizing and planning project activities and in designing project–related products, and because of this HHREC is consistently turned to as a reliable and effective resource for accessing community input and conducting outreach.
