Housing Resources

Local (Bay Area) Resources

BACS knows that nobody wants to be homeless. We are a Housing First agency, which means we radically believe that finding housing is the first priority to improving quality of life. Once people have their basic necessities (food & shelter) taken care of, then we can address behavioral & physical health issues, substance use, employment, and more. Every individual BACS serves will receive whatever they need to become stable and have reliable housing.

Coordinated Entry is the front door to the homelessness response system (HRS). It is designed to assess, prioritize and match people experiencing homelessness to housing opportunities efficiently and consistently. Coordinated Entry uses a locally designated population-specific assessment, a centralized data system, a “by name” database of clients, and a prioritization method.
