When doors open in 2023, the Wellness Campus will provide life-saving interventions for an estimated 700 medically vulnerable, unhoused Alameda County residents annually.
The Alameda Wellness Campus facilitates the journey from homelessness and medical crisis to housing stability, health recovery, and a caring community.
The 3.6-acre project site is adjacent to a shoreline park in Alameda. The beauty of the site is conducive to healing and vibrant community life.
The Wellness Center offers a new standard of care for unhoused adults for the state and nation, featuring:
- Comprehensive Care: 50-bed medical respite program, 100 permanent homes for seniors, on-site health center, and a homelessness prevention program on one site
- Integrated Service Model fostering health recovery, housing stability, trauma healing, and health equity
- Geriatric, cognitive, palliative, and hospice care to support residents to age in a community with dignified end-of-life care
- Collaboratively shaped model with inputs from consumers, health providers, elected officials, neighbors, and content experts
- Broad support from City of Alameda residents and elected officials for the Wellness Campus to serve as a key resource for medically vulnerable neighbors county-wide
Imagine being discharged from the hospital to your tent. The Wellness Campus is a new model of care for our nation by providing housing, health care, and dignity for our unsheltered relatives living and dying on our streets. This project is a personal priority.
