Supportive Housing

It’s a Human Right

BAC is committed to securing our community with supportive housing. We have connected  formerly homeless individuals and families with more than 260 open units through extensive programs. We prioritize providing shelter to individuals with chronic medical conditions, mental health conditions, a history of substance use, young parents, as well as those who have been homeless or formerly incarcerated.
“I believe that basic human rights should include healthcare and housing.  I am proud of the work BAC does.  The team is incredible and it gives me great joy to know that we help people connect with vital services each day.”

The following programs are open to receive referrals from community providers:
