Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) is a supportive housing community that helps families and individuals break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. For a family that has faced the stress and uncertainty of life on the streets, APC is a new start, a chance to thrive in stable housing, surrounded by family and friends, with support from committed staff. As the largest supportive housing provider for homeless families in Alameda County, our wide range of services give residents the tools they need for long-term success. Formed in 1999, APC transformed vacant military housing on the former Alameda Naval Air Station into a supportive community housing. APC now operates 200 units of housing over 34 acres of land, providing over 350 formerly homeless residents, including 200 children and youth, with the safety and stability of a place to call home. All residents have easy access to life and job skills training, substance abuse and mental health counseling, employment assistance, and children and youth programming, all provided by a team of highly skilled professionals.
As Support Specialist, you’ll engage residents to participate in wellness-based supportive services to help residents retain their housing and be self-sufficient. As a member of an interdisciplinary support team, you’ll provide individual case management and supportive services to APC resident families. You’ll conduct intake and needs assessments, develop individualized family wellness action plans, maintain supportive family support relationships, and coordinate with internal and external providers to help our residents achieve their goals. You’ll work as a partner with the resident community to develop and implement individual and group service activities that support a strong APC resident community. You’ll facilitate and teach functional life skills and educational workshops. You’ll actively support the planning and implementation of community building and community leadership events and programs.
