Meet the Project Partners working together to create a new model of care for the unhoused

The Alameda Wellness Campus consists of three project partners: Alameda Point Collaborative (Project Lead), LifeLong Medical Care (Service Provider), and Mercy Housing (Housing Developer). We are working together to shape a truly transformative care model to address the chronic trauma and worsening health conditions experienced by medically fragile and unhoused residents of Alameda County.

LifeLong will be the health care and service provider for the Wellness Campus’s Health Clinic, Medical Respite Center, and senior housing. Founded by the senior advocacy group Gray Panthers, LifeLong is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with a 45-year history of providing high-quality medical, behavioral health, and social services for older adults and others with complex health and social needs. Today, over 66,000 low-income East Bay residents choose LifeLong as their healthcare provider. LifeLong’s extensive services for unhoused individuals include a primary care clinic (Trust Health Center), services at 14 supportive housing sites, a 27-bed medical respite program, and street medicine services providing health care in encampments in Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, and Oakland.

Since 1999, APC has operated supportive housing communities for homeless individuals and families. APC is developing 100 studios for seniors at the Wellness Campus, rebuilding its 200 supportive housing units, and developing 100 additional supportive housing units with project partners. APC’s comprehensive services include case management, job training, children and youth programs, resident leadership initiatives, and food security programs. 

Mercy Housing is the co-developer of our senior supportive housing. As a national organization, Mercy Housing has developed, preserved, and/or financed approximately 50,000 affordable homes to benefit more than 152,000 residents. Mercy Housing is one of the nation’s largest affordable housing organizations and participates in the development, preservation, management, and financing of affordable, program-enriched housing across the country. In addition, it acquires and renovates existing housing and develops new affordable rental properties.
