Doreen Katiba immigrated to the United States in 2018 for a few reasons: she wanted to see a new side of the world with new opportunities, she wanted to make new friends, and most importantly, she wanted to reunite with her husband who was already in the U.S. In Kenya, Doreen had served many patients as a counselor, helping with their emotional and social needs. Her dream in the United States was to receive healthcare training to help with patients' physical needs as well.
Here we are, still dealing with COVID-19 but with plenty to be grateful for. Even during these unprecedented times, the Opportunity Junction family is full of holiday spirit and doing all we can to share it with others. To help ease the seasonal pressure on the families we serve, OJ is continuing its tradition of providing Thanksgiving meals to fill up holiday tables.
On November 18, 2021, Opportunity Junction was awarded the Economic Justice Award as part of the East Bay Philanthropy Awards. The philanthropy awards are an annual celebration of impact, innovation, and generosity in the social sector. They are hosted by the East Bay Leadership Council (EBLC).
