Location: 677 W Ranger Avenue Alameda CA 94501 USA

Mission: Alameda Point Collaborative is a supportive housing community that uses all its resource to help families and adults break the cycle of homelessness.
Geographic areas served: Alameda County, CA
Programs: The Alameda Point Collaborative was created to provide meaningful housing to homeless families throughout the East Bay. APC has transformed vacant housing at a decommissioned Naval Air Station into a supportive housing community serving 500 homeless residents of Alameda County. Housing that once enabled military families to stay close to their loved ones, now enables homeless families to reunite and stay together. Residents are provided with the safety and stability of a place to live combined with life skills and job skills training, advocacy to connect with services, and emotional support all with the ultimate goal of breaking the cycle of homelessness and getting the support needed to be able to lead a stable, productive life. APC Residents include survivors of domestic violence, adults and children with disabilities (including substance abuse, mental illness, and HIV/AIDS), and veterans and their families. The diversity of our community reflects the face of homelessness in Alameda County: 60% of our residents are African American, 21% are Native American, 8% are White, Hispanic and Latino make up 6%, Asian American and Pacific Islander are another 5%. More than half of our residents (280) are youth ages 18 and under, and they receive special attention and support as we help them overcome generational cycles of domestic violence, substance abuse and homelessness to fulfill their right to be raised in a healthy, nurturing family.

I volunteered last summer helping tutor children in reading and assisting with the children's cooking classes. It was challenging in some ways for me to understand and fit into the realities of that community, but tremendously rewarding. Now that I have a better sense of the people and physical situation at APC, I look forward to continuing to introduce children to new skills and ideas, and will probably expand the activities I'll be involved in with residents and staff.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

I worked with this organization for a short time, and the people who are being served here are well deserving of this housing support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping gain awareness for the organization because I believe in thier cause of ending homelessness by offering transitional housing

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Profide more professional assistance to wade thru the governmental issues that bog down helping more people find housing thru this organization.
