The Wellness Campus secured early financial support for the capital campaign from Kaiser Permanente, The California Endowment, Alameda County, and Sutter Health Foundation to support the Medical Respite Center.
The following foundations support the service model, including Anthem Foundation, Sutter Health Foundation, Arlene & Michael Rosen Foundation, California Wellness Foundation, California Health Care Foundation, Stupski Foundation, and the San Francisco Foundation
Alameda County is proud to have made a significant financial investment and provide collaborative leadership to advance this one-of-a-kind Wellness project. The Alameda Wellness Campus will initiate a new model of integrated care for our most medically vulnerable and unhoused residents, not only in Alameda County but potentially throughout California and the nation.

CHCF has been honored to support the Alameda Wellness Campus in pioneering a purpose-built model of integrated care and housing for medically vulnerable and older adults experiencing homelessness. The research we funded will help enable the launch of a medical respite program that is tailored to support recovery from acute illness, stabilize chronic illness, and, when necessary, provide dignified end of life care – all with a trauma-informed, harm reduction, and culturally responsive approach.
