Make 722 a HomeCityTeam Oakland’s 722 Washington Street Building Renovation Campaign
Building Project Updates
Where we Started
Our building located at 722 Washington Street, originally constructed in 1885, was in dire need of repairs to meet California code standards, enhance the continuity of care across our programs, and meet new needs to serve our community.
What We’ve Achieved
Through your generous support, we have accomplished seismic retrofitting, upgrading the electrical, adding 4 additional bathrooms, kitchen remodeling, and expanding our learning and career center space. As this renovation is nearing its final stages, we are shifting our focus to prepare the space our men will be moving back into.
Where We Are Going
Make 722 a home! As we look forward to moving back into our newly renovated building our greatest needs are to furnish the rooms with new bed frames, mattresses, tables, wardrobes, and decorations so each of our 85 men will feel at home. In addition to furnishing the bedrooms, we also want to enhance our gathering spaces where classes, activities, movie nights, and family meetings happen.
These spaces provide an opportunity for fellowship and community. To furnish our gathering spaces we need new couches, tables and chairs, classroom and office furniture, and tech for our career and learning centers.
Would you consider supporting this final stage of our 722 Building project by providing furnishings for our bedrooms and/or gathering spaces?

This renovation would not be possible without our generous supporters and volunteers. We are enormously grateful for those who have partnered with us to help CityTeam reach its full potential.
It’s been a long journey to revitalize 722 Washington Street, but we have pursued our vision with perseverance. Watch this short video to hear how we intend to serve more men, women, and children in Oakland than ever before with our new facilities.
Interested to see where we started this journey? Take a tour through our old building before it was shown some love! The building built in 1885 has served us well, but it was certainly time for an update. Stay tuned for a visual update of our new renovated space.
The renovation of 722 has not stopped CityTeam Oakland from furthering its mission to ignite hope and restore lives. Hot meals are still being served, residents’ lives are still being transformed, and neighborhood mobile pantries are thriving during this season!
