BACS programs are always there to help. We have 24/7 residential programs across the Bay Area, addressing mental health and housing crises with expertise and compassion. BACS provides a short-term place for people in crisis to ...
What makes BACS special – so that more neighbors have housing instead of living on the streets, so that more people get the mental health care they need – is our incredible team. The 430+ people who leave their homes and show up to work everyday to do ‘whatever it takes’ for the community we serve.
“Every day, our staff come into work ready for anything – and they are working against massive odds with community members who are too often ignored. BACS team members are untold first responders, in hospitals and encampments and anywhere else there is a complex crisis. It is my sincere privilege to compensate the team as highly as we value them.” – Jamie Almanza, CEO
It is because of this that BACS took a major leap – and created a new “BACS minimum wage” – a living wage that complements our extremely comprehensive benefits package. The new wage significantly raises all current staff dramatically – in most cases by 30%.
Our mission is to uplift under-served individuals and their families by doing whatever it takes.
