Wesley Resource Center

Wesley Classroom Center

1328 East San Ramon #B

 Mission Statement:

“We share our needs and talents to build up our community.

We help each other.

Together we will learn to better utilize community resources.”

  Before it became what it is now, the Wesley Resource Classroom was an idea; a vision that residents and volunteers conjured due to their desire to see a safe and thriving neighborhood. Their vision became reality in the form of a resource center design to improve the quality of life in El Dorado Park by building and strengthening relationships between El Dorado Park residents.   The Classroom is located at 1328 E. San Ramon #B and is open from 9 a.m. to noon. The community classroom is a collaboration between the Fresno Housing Authority and Wesley UMC.  The R.C is a place to:

  • Gather for building relationships
  • Support the maintenance of the alleys by working with residents and property owners
  • Help residents get IDs, social security cards, medical
