  • Mission:
  • Ariel Outreach Mission is a non-profit organization that reaches out to help men, women and families experiencing immediate life challenges to attain the security, safety and skills they need to become, independent, responsible, and self-sufficient individuals in the community. We open the doors of our temporary shelters and emergency residential program to those who are fleeing homelessness, poverty, unemployment and illness, in an effort to rebuild their lives. Unlike similar emergency respite programs in the area, we provide individuals who stay at Ariel Outreach Mission with access to a wide range of resources located on site at our positive and secure residential environment.

  • Overview:
  • As in most economically challenged urban communities, a large number of residents here find it difficult to achieve living wages, healthy families, solid education, decent housing in safe communities, and adequate health care. The neighborhoods that we serve continues to see an increase in homelessness, hunger, hopelessness, crime, substance abuse, and family violence. Oakland police statistics show that the number of yearly reports of family violence in this neighborhood (39 per 1,000 in 2011) are regularly twice as high as in the rest of the city and almost three times as high as that of the state. However, Ariel Outreach Mission is making a positive difference in helping to get individuals off the streets and help them to walk in the areas of independence, success and self-sufficiency. Program “Ariel Next Step” offers positive outlets to those that are suffering. Our program offers work essential skills in the areas of: referrals into the Medical and Dental field, Restaurant work, Landscaping, Real Estate, Accounting, Customer Service and Administrative work, etc. Clients have an opportunity to learn tools and skills that will help them to be employable and in our program they also learn how to better deal with adversity, how to be healthy/well, self-esteem, and how to welcome challenges in life without running in the wrong direction (which includes crime and other risky behavior).The clients we serve represent the diversity of the Bay Area. Our program serves individuals from all backgrounds, ethnic origins, etc. Ariel does not discriminate in any form or fashion. We desire that everyone leaves in a successful and happy state. This is the Overview and goals of our program.

  • History:
  • Organization History: In 1982, Ariel Outreach Mission was started by two sisters that saw great distress in the community and they wanted to help and not just look the other way. In 1982, Karla and Nadine began to meet basic human needs such as: providing free food to those that were hungry, providing clothing, shoes, blankets, and then they began providing shelter for the homeless. As the years went on, Ariel Outreach Mission was able to provide a free small Community Resource Center that is open to the public. The Resource Center provides counseling/career services, employment referrals, medical and dental referrals and other services as needed. Over the years, Ariel has received Letters of Appreciation from: Congresswoman Barbara Lee, the current Mayor, Jean Quan, Former Assemblymember Wilma Chan, Former Mayor of Oakland, Jerry Brown, who is now the Governor of California, the entire Oakland City Council, For Mayor Ron Dellums, and so many others. Ariel Outreach Mission is now in its 32nd year of service. Ariel has a proven track record in the community. Project “Ariel Next Step” strives to achieve three primary goals for our clients: (1) Alleviation of immediate life challenges including a lack of adequate shelter, clothing, food and basic necessities thereby diminishing the likelihood of returning to risky situations and preparing clients for utilization of longer term services. The primary tool that helps us support individuals in achieving this first goal is our safe and positive residency. (2) Strengthening of the individual’s capacity to care for themselves and their family over the long term through provision of counseling, encouragement, case management, basic literacy skills, job training and placement and assistance navigating the health care system. (3) We strive to ensure that each person who “graduates” from the “ Ariel Next Step” Program is prepared to attain longer-term stability and self-sufficiency through the acquisition of employment, housing, and childcare. Ariel Outreach Mission has a 90% success rate for its clients in these three areas. Many individuals who came into our program with close to nothing have gone on to complete their education, secure a career in a field they love, and find a new home for their family.
