Alameda County Project Homekey

Project Homekey is a Permanent Supportive Housing program for formally homeless individuals, created in 2020 by the purchase of two hotels formally serving as temporary emergency shelters under the Project Roomkey program. In partnership with East Bay Innovations (EBI), Cardea Health provides clinical services at Project Homekey that allow residents access to consistent and quality health care and services. 

 

The Project Homekey Oak Days site is a permanent supportive housing site where medically- frail people will be able to live in the community through the continuum of their care needs, including hospice/end-of-life care. EBI and Cardea Health will use Medi-Cal waiver programs (ALW and HCBA) to fund onsite caregivers and nurses, in conjunction with community-based Medi-Cal covered services.

 

The Project Homekey Comfort Inn site serves Homekey residents by supporting relationships with primary care and specialty services and assisting individuals as they adapt to changing medical needs.

In partnership with Alameda Point Collaborative and Lifelong Medical Care, Cardea Health is participating in the planning of the upcoming Alameda Wellness Campus. Upon completion, the AWC plans to house 90-100 homeless individuals over the age of 55 in Senior Permanent Supportive Housing and provide an additional 50 medical respite beds. Cardea Health is planning sustainable service programming for both the AWC PSH and respite programs.

Cardea Health provides clinical programming at the Fairmont Respite Site, in collaboration with Alameda County and Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency (BOSS). Fairmont Respite provides 15 tiny home units that provide shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness who need a safe and secure environment in order to recover from an acute medical condition. In addition to receiving nursing care, respite guests are also connected with social and housing services.
