SITE OVERVIEWS


San Leandro Shelter

The San Leandro Shelter offers 24–hour staffing and client services for 30 women and children. Along with food and shelter, staff provides case management, resources, referrals, advocacy, and household items for residents moving beyond shelter.

The Sister Me Home Safe House opened in 1996 as a 9–bed shelter and program for survivors of domestic violence. In July 2000, Building Futures moved into a newly purchased and renovated building that increased the capacity to 20 beds. Along with food and shelter, staff provides case management, resources, referrals, advocacy and household items for residents oving beyond the shelter.



The Midway Shelter is the City of Alameda’s only homeless shelter. Building Futures renovated and opened Midway in January 2001. The 25–bed shelter offers the same services as the San Leandro Shelter, and is supported by the Alameda Homeless Network, an umbrella organization of community partners.

Bessie Coleman Court (BCC) Located at the former Alameda Naval Air Station, BCC provides 22 units of transitional and 30 units of permanent housing for survivors of domestic violence. BCC opened its doors in the Spring of 2002.
