As many as 16,000 people are homeless during the course of a year in Alameda County, and more than 5,000 are homeless on any given night. Because of this, the “Alameda Countywide Homeless and Special Needs Housing Plan” was enacted on July 15, 2005. In order to prevent and end homelessness for the plan’s target populations, the plan establishes five goals: 

  1. Prevent homelessness and other housing crises
  2. Increase housing opportunities for the plan’s target populations
  3. Deliver flexible services to support stability and independence
  4. Measure success and report outcomes
  5. Develop long-term leadership and build political will
Successful implementation of this plan will require the support and participation of many more individuals, organizations, sectors, and jurisdictions. The plan was sponsored and funded by: Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services, Alameda County Housing and Community Development Department, Alameda County Public Health Department Office of AIDS Administration, Alameda County Social Services Agency, Alameda Countywide Homeless Continuum of Care Council, City of Berkeley Housing Department, City of Berkeley Health and Human Services Department, City of Oakland Community and Economic Development Agency, and the City of Oakland Department of Human Services.
