Happy New Year! Our 2018 has begun with thrilling news!

The Rosalie Rendu Center has just received a very generous grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, allowing us to buy new computers, hire another ESL teacher, continue our family enrichment program and offer a new week-long spring break program for school-aged children.

CZI grants address many community needs that coincide with our own vision, mission and concerns, including education, housing and workforce development.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative believes that those most impacted by challenges should be guiding the development of solutions. Launched in 2017, the CZI Community Fund supports organizations working in Belle Haven, East Palo Alto, North Fair Oaks, and Redwood City to address the most pressing needs identified by residents and local leaders.

At the Rosalie Rendu Center, we offer all of our services for free, so we depend upon gifts and grants to operate.We also rely on talented and dedicated volunteers in addition to our small staff to offer the very best instruction in English, life-skills and computer literacy.

We so appreciate our generous and loyal donors and volunteers and we thank you all for making the work of the Center possible. We hope you share our joy in our latest grant from the CZI and look forward to celebrating a fabulous new year at the Center with you.

Sister Trinitas, warmly known as Sister T at the Rosalie Rendu Center, shares her reflections of teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in the East Palo Alto community. Sister T and her team have been offering free, specialized ESL classes for over 15 years in a traditionally underserved neighborhood in the Bay Area. Hundreds of families have benefited from the resources at the Center, and Sister T continues to deliver on the promise to combat poverty through education.
