Village Keepers, Inc., formerly known as RUA’H Community Outreach with an eleven-year history of providing services to the Black community in East Contra Costa, CA, was restructured in 2020. The name was changed to Village Keepers, Inc. to provide clarity of purpose and programs redesigned to align with the platforms of the national Social Justice Movement.
Village Keepers Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Dr. Carrie Frazier is the President/CEO. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors and a community Advisory Committee.
Village Keepers envisions a world where all people, especially disenfranchised Black people, are guaranteed the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, with freedom and justice for all” (U.S. Constitution). We envision a world where life sustaining resources are a ‘right’ and available to help all families and individuals become self-sufficient and prosper.
The organization was established to coordinate
a holistic network of Black organizations, individuals and allies dedicated to ensuring the safety, health, education, and economic stability of Black families who are impacted by poverty and systemic racism within East and Central Contra Costa County, CA.
