Alumni of Chung Mei Boys home and Ming Quong Girls home will gather together to share their stories of resilience and kinship.  

Chung Mei Boys Home 

Founded in 1923 by Dr. Charles R. Shepard, Chung Mei was a home for abandoned Chinese boys in San Francisco’s Chinatown. “No other orphanage would take in

 children of color or Asiatic races.”   Chung Mei was established in Berkeley and moved to El Cerrito in 1935.


Ming Quong Girls Home

First established in the mid-1920's, there were homes in San Francisco, Oakland and Los Gatos. Ming Quong means radiant light in Chinese. Ming Quong was home to neglected or abandoned Asian girls.

Alumni from both homes will reminisce about their experiences growing up in their respective homes, how they survived and thrived and ultimately how it shaped their lives and their drive to succeed. 

Join CHCP for a unique hybrid event that will be held in person and on Zoom.   

Parking: Park for free on local streets or use the San Jose city parking lot at the end of Phelan Avenue for $6.
