BACS’ Short-Term Housing and Respite programs serve homeless individuals age 18+.
We provide interim housing and rehabilitation services, while our Short-Term Housing team locates permanent housing. In the meantime, we provide mental health support, independent living skills development, employment support, respite services, and more. Respite services include short-term shelter, respite from the streets, behavioral support, and nutrition. Our team is committed to helping make sustainable housing a reality for everyone. Our model is to work with families and natural supports, to help create lasting change.
BACS has been offering short-term housing services since 2010. These programs serve more than 500 people per year, and operate around the clock. Our Short-Term Housing programs serve Alameda and Solano Counties.
“I felt hopeless – diagnosed with schizophrenia, lost my job, and lost our apartment. Devin stayed with me, lived in the car with me, and helped me find BACS. They treated us like family, helped me get my benefits, and helped us find a new place to live.”
