Geographic areas served: Alameda County

Programs: BFHP operates two emergency shelters for women and children and men. We serve a daily meal five nights a week. BFHP also provides resource counseling so that our clients may begin to resolve the issues in their life that caused and prolong their homelessness. We also offer transitional housing and recently opened a permanent housing program for formerly homeless adults with psychiatric disabilities.

Mission:
To ease and end the crisis of homelessness in our community, Berkeley Food and Housing Project provides emergency food and shelter, transitional housing, permanent housing, and housing placement with support services to homeless individuals and families.

Founded in 1970, Berkeley Food and Housing Project has worked to ease and end the crisis of homelessness for men, women, and children in the Berkeley community. With programs ranging from free meal service to permanent supportive housing, BFHP provides a continuum of care to accommodate a broad spectrum of specialized needs.

BFHP assists low-income and homeless individuals with needs and disabilities that are not effectively met by mainstream social services. The agency hallmark is to provide services with compassion to foster a nurturing, healing environment that can effectively end an individual’s cycle of homelessness.
