The 12 acres of the North Housing site known as the Homeless Accommodation Parcel are governed by a partnership between the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda, Alameda Point Collaborative, and Building Futures. These three partners have signed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding roles and responsibilities of each organization.
The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda was created in 1940 to meet the housing need produced by the opening of the Alameda Naval Air Station (NAS) earlier that year. Today, the Housing Authority owns and manages approximately 600 units of housing, administers over 1,500 Housing Choice Vouchers, acts as a real estate developer of affordable housing, and administers the City’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance.
Alameda Point Collaborative
APC provides housing to over 200 formerly homeless households in the City of Alameda and is the largest provider of supportive housing in Alameda County. Supportive services include on-site case management, academic toutoring for youth, a workforce development program, and on-the-job training opportunities at APC’s own social enterprises.
Formerly known as Building Futures with Women and Children, Building Futures, provides resources, programs, and services throughout Alameda County to help residents build futures free from homelessness and family violence. Building Futures also serves as the Housing Resource Center for the City of Alameda under the Coordinated Entry System and provides case management services to individuals experiencing homelessness in Alameda.
