The Acuña Art Gallery & Cultural Center/Café on A is a community cultural center which hosts multiple empowering and strengthening activities: academic, social empowerment, arts enrichment and community strengthening programs for our Oxnard Plains community.
The mission of the Foundation for Educational and Employment Resources Development @ the Café on A is to empower our community through pragmatic, compassionate and loving programming.
Our vision is to prepare our community to be productive, aware and actively contributing members of our local community, and to become agents of change for the greater society.
Our principle and defining philosophy is to respect the rights of the individual, provide service to the community, and to be active servants to the transformational power of unconditional love.
We practice a philosophy of unconditional love that understands and embraces the fact that the lower the socio-economic our clients reside the greater is the need to fully attempt to address the health needs and issues of both mind and body of the clients.
Through various programs at the Café on A, we have grown to understand one constant: that the courage, honesty, and creativity of the clients with whom we are lucky enough to work, never fails to leave us humble and grateful.
The need to provide educational services, resources and programming to the Oxnard community is dire and immediate. The Café on A is one of the only community-based organizations that works directly with the working class and disenfranchised citizens of Oxnard. We help to uplift our community out from poverty and dysfunction, and into educational and vocational prosperity. Our resources are limited, thus we humbly and graciously accept your support for the work that we do. Remember that we are a non-profit organization, which means that your donation is 100% tax deductible!
Your support is greatly appreciated and will directly improve the quality of life for the underprivileged citizens of our community. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
