Stabilizing Families | Strengthening the Individual | Revitalizing the Community

Welcome from Executive Director, Washington Burns, M.D.


Welcome to the Prescott-Joseph Center. For over 25 years, PJC has been the hub for services for children, youth, families, and seniors in West Oakland. Our vision has always been for PJC  to be a "friendly helping hand" for West Oakland. Especially now during these challenging times with COVID-19, we want to be here for our West Oakland neighbors more than ever. Please visit our "COVID-19 Services" page to learn about the services we are currently offering. Together, we will make it through this. 


Thank you for your continued support. Be safe. Stay well.
