Bay Area Community Services (BACS) provides intensive mental health services to individuals ages 16+.
These programs work with the highest acuity participants, who need the most support. Our model is to work with families and natural supports, to help create lasting change. Every individual BACS serves will receive whatever they need to recover from mental health and substance use issues, and have reliable housing.
Crisis Residential Treatment
A short-term residential alternative to psychiatric hospitalization, or support following hospitalization, for individuals in active psychiatric distress who need support to cope and heal. These programs are embedded in the community, and speed up recovery while creating a long-term plan for wellness. BACS sites include Woodroe Place in Hayward, Amber House in Oakland, Rosewood Place in Vallejo, Nevin House in Richmond, and Nierika House in Concord.
Intensive Care Coordination
Psychiatric services and care coordination for people with severe behavioral health issues and trauma.
Full Service Partnership
The original ‘whatever it takes’ program, FSPs help our community members who need the most assistance. Oriented in ‘wraparound’ philosophy, FSPs support individuals in every aspect of their life, breaking mental health, housing, and community barriers that hold people back. BACS’ FSPs include teens, people experiencing chronic homelessness, older adults, and people re-entering the community from prison/jail.
Care coordination for people living with severe mental health issues who are re-entering the community from jail/prison and need housing, employment, and community support to prevent recidivism.
