Towne House Reunion & Open House
BACS is celebrating 48 years of Towne House Wellness Center, and 25 years at the current neighborhood location on Oakland Ave! Participants are able to contribute to the community by cooking meals, leading groups and activities, participating in creating beautiful artwork, and most importantly, caring for one another and lending a helping hand.
We cordially invite you to the Towne House Reunion and Open House, for all supporters and former participants to come celebrate 48 years of community wellness. Join us Wednesday, November 29, from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., at 629 Oakland Ave, Oakland.
Sprouts Foundation Grant
BACS is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant from the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation! The Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation is providing these funds to BACS in order to support critical housing programs for individuals with complex needs. This program provides stable and permanent housing options, at very low cost, along with a care coordinator who helps residents learn independent living skills in a supportive environment. The Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation knows that change matters, and that making a difference on the local community level can bring big change.
BACS’ Memory Care Centers 30th Anniversary
BACS is delighted to celebrate the anniversaries of our two Memory Care adult day programs! Our first Memory Care program started in 1987 in Oakland, and we opened our Fremont location in 2000. These Memory Care programs are spaces where elders with memory disorders can connect with others, socialize, and participate in guided activities. Our services offer respite for caregivers and families.
Thank you to everyone who makes our programs special — caregivers, staff, and the participants who come every day!
Finding Purpose at BACS’ Wellness Center
Before she came to BACS, Kara Alyssa Bautista was a regular at inpatient hospitals. Now, she says, she has “found purpose” at BACS’ Valley Wellness Center as a Peer Lead. “I learned many life lessons at Valley such as the importance of community and how it correlates to wellness. I have motivated and encouraged my peers to assist me in maintaining and preserving the center and in turn, developed leadership skills and assertiveness to foster healthy levels of self-esteem.” Kara is part of the BestNow program, providing training and job readiness, and hopes to complete it then return to college.
