100 Day Challenge to Address HomelessnessReturn to Blog
The COVID-19 pandemic and recent wildfires remind us of the importance of safe and permanent housing for protecting one’s health. In response to COVID-19, the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency (HCSA) and Alameda County Health Care for the Homeless (ACHCH) partnered with Abode Services and the State of California to implement Project Roomkey. Project Roomkey provides our unsheltered neighbors with isolation housing to recover from COVID-19 and safe housing for high-risk populations to help prevent them from contracting the virus.
These partners have now taken on Governor Newsom’s 100 Day Challenge Initiative to address homelessness and are looking for property owners and landlords to help residents leaving Project Roomkey find permanent housing. The Alameda County 100 Day Challenge Initiative aims to disrupt the cycle of homelessness by placing our unsheltered neighbors exiting Project Roomkey into permanent housing.
Program benefits include guaranteed on-time monthly payments, financial incentives, and support to help property owners with tenant issues and resident support services available for tenants. If you have a unit to lease and want to participate in the 100 Day Challenge, contact HCSA at ACHomes@acgov.org or 510-777-2100.
