Housing formerly homeless families and individuals on the decommissioned Alameda Naval Air Station since 1999. APC is the largest supportive housing community in Alameda County. In addition to housing, we provide wrap-around services to address the root cause of poverty. Our three social enterprises (Ploughshares Nursery, APC's Farm2Market, and a commercial kitchen) provide critical resources, life skills, and on-the-job training for our residents. 

Thank you for volunteering!

Volunteers are a vital part of the APC community. We greatly appreciate your interest in donating your time and skills to help Alameda Point Collaborative!

We welcome all volunteers, regardless of race, color, sex, language, religion, gender, gender identity, political affiliation, national or social origin, disability, ate, marital and family status, sexual orientation, place of residence, economic and social situation, veteran status in all of our activities and operations.

About APC

APC’s Mission

Alameda Point Collaborative's mission is working to end homelessness by providing housing and services to create communities where formerly homeless families and individuals can flourish.

APC’s Equity Statement

APC strives to recruit a racially and ethnically diverse workforce. We aim to provide a workplace that is for everyone and where everyone’s voice is heard.
