BACS provides behavioral health, housing, and aging services for teens, adults, older adults, and their families. Our programs span the Bay Area and focus on doing ‘whatever it takes’ to help individuals stay out of institutional care and stay connected to their communities.
Each year, BACS helps more than 7,500 people. For each of those people, BACS provides ‘whatever it takes’ to help them reach stability and wellness with mental health issues, find or keep housing, recover from an addiction, or re-enter the community after leaving prison/jail.
Our programs are innovative, our methods are proven, and our outcomes show the measurable change BACS is making in communities across the Bay Area:
- This year, BACS saved taxpayers more than $5.7 million by reducing hospitalization for 96% of our participants
- Since 1953, BACS has served more than 100,000 people
- This year, BACS’ housing / homelessness programs reached 23% of all homeless adults in Oakland, with an 88% success rate in ending their homelessness
