  • Family Resource House of Unity

     Elder Eddie Abrams is the Founder and Executive Director of the Family Resource House of Unity (FRHU). The FRHU is a non-profit, community based organization currently located in the Eastmont Town Center, 7200 Bancroft Avenue, Suite 230, Oakland, California.

    Eddie, was born in 1931 in the village of Hub, Mississippi, he is one of fifteen children. Eddie was raised in an environment that instilled in him a spirit of caring for all people. It caused him to realize at an early age, being monetarily poor, did not diminish one’s God given human qualities nor one’s ability to achieve. His spirit of giving and caring for others are rooted in the Great Volumes as written by the profits of old “Love ye one another”.

     Eddie relocated to Oakland, California, in 1948. He attended McClymonds High School in Oakland, California and joined the California National Guard in 1949 his outfit was activated in 1950, deactivated in 1952. Following military service, he found employment at the Alameda Naval Air Station where he worked for 28 years then transferred to the Oakland Naval Supply Center where he worked as General Forman until retiring in 1986 with 36 years of dedicated service.

     During his employment at the Naval Supply Center as general Forman, he received numerous awards for leadership and outstanding service, and on numerous occasions recognized by the Navy base’s news paper (the Oak Leaf) for the same.

     In 1978, the Grand Architect of the Universe inspired him to establish the Family Resource House of Unity, a Non-Profit Corporation. Through the years, The House of Unity has maintained the same teachings and beliefs, which the elders taught Eddie during his formative years of life.
