About the Program

The Homeless Action Center’s newest project is Almost Home, a house on Haste Street in Berkeley managed by HAC staff. Almost Home provides seven Supplemental Security Income (SSI) legal services clients with temporary, supportive, transitional housing. The goal of the program is to stabilize clients when they are near completion of the long waiting period for resolution of their SSI case and permanent housing placement through housing case management. Almost Home allows us to place some clients in-house, making it even simpler for attorneys to reach them while they work on their cases.

Eligibility for Almost Home

Almost Home clients are referred through Alameda County and must meet specific eligibility criteria. For more information about placement, please contact almost_home@homelessactioncenter.org.
