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. LifeLong is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with a 45-year history of providing medical, behavioral health, and social services for older adults and others with complex health 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’s comprehensive services include case management, job training and social enterprises, children and youth programs, resident leadership initiatives, and food security programs.
