Berkeley Food & Housing Project works with people who are homeless to move them into affordable permanent housing as quickly as possible – and to help them remain housed. To facilitate this, we provide an extensive range of food, housing, and social support services at 6 sites over 3 counties – Alameda, Solano and Contra Costa. Our portfolio includes programming specifically designed for the chronically homeless, those with serious mental illness, women and their children, and veterans.
