BAY AREA COMMUNITY SERVICES HOMELESS SENIOR OUTREACH PROGRAM
Oakland, California, USA.
“Bay Area Community Services is a California leader in innovative & ambitious solutions to ending homelessness. We are an effective provider of housing & homelessness solutions, working to make visible changes in our community. We operate effective rapid-rehousing programs, and we are buying single-family homes across the service area to provide permanent housing. We are doing whatever it takes to address this crisis.”
"The programs are outreached based, which means our staff hit the streets to locate hard-to-reach people. Many of our participants were connected with a variety of other programs in the past, but failed out of those programs because of their complexities….we may bring toiletries, food, and clothes to a homeless camp and visit for a matter of months to build trust with someone before they agree to join services."
The Bay Area Community Services Homeless Senior Outreach Program is able to provide homeless seniors money for rent, move in costs, application fees, furniture set and more.
