Abode Services is a wonderful nonprofit that is making head way in the bay area. Homelessness is at an all time high and Abode is working to put an end to this. They have helped several people in many ways from shelters to building homes and even working with landlords. Their employees are friendly and caring people who are passionate for the work they do. I would recommend Abode Services to anyone who is currently experiencing homelessness. Great Job!

This review is based on their reputation for inability to retain staff and high turnover. How can the public receive consistent services if their staff keep changing? I am frustrated as a client and have inquired about this issue. I am suspecting this is due to management.

Abode Services is a very careful steward of their resources. The organization's commitment to the homeless of Southern Alameda County is without compare, due in large measure to the skills of the professional staff. Abode has a vital role to play in ensuring that needy individuals receive shelter in a worsening budgetary climate.
