The Tiny Homes will serve homeless adults identified through Alameda County’s Coordinated Entry System, prioritizing those who have experienced long-periods of homelessness. Fifteen Homes at the site will be set aside for medical respite (for individuals who are too ill or frail to recover on the street but not ill enough for a hospital setting). The program provides property management and access to case management, housing navigation services, life skills classes, a small computer lab, peer support groups, and more.
