Collaboratively creating a just & compassionate community

The Wellness Campus strengthens the model of care for individuals who are living and dying on our streets

APC, LifeLong and Project Champions have achieved the following: 

  • Created a national model of integrated care to provide recuperative care, stable housing, health services, homelessness prevention, and hospice care for unhoused individuals.
  • Shaped a Wellness Campus, featuring permanent supportive housing for seniors, a medical respite program, co-located health clinic, and services for an estimated 700 unhoused Alameda County residents annually.
  • Finalized the capital campaign for the Medical Respite Center!
  • Attained a wellspring of support and engagement from community leaders, elected officials, neighbors, individuals who have experienced homelessness, and health care providers.
  • Secured the no-fee conveyance of the site next to East Bay Regional Park’s Crab Cove in Alameda, a beautiful shoreline area aligned with our mission to foster healing and wellness.
  • Begun construction for the Medical Respite Center!
Special Election

City of Alameda residents decisively rejected a 2019 ballot initiative aimed at stopping the project. Residents engaged in dialogue around racial justice, homelessness, and the repair of historical harm. This victory is a powerful community statement. City of Alameda residents demonstrated the power of a community taking a stand to address homelessness county-wide.
