March 23, 2020

City of Albany essential services continue during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Albany’s Project HOPE, in collaboration with the City’s service provider Berkeley Food & Housing Project (BFHP), has temporarily housed 10 people experiencing homelessness in Albany in hotel rooms, and provided food and basic need items. BFHP continues to provide support to these individuals.

The City’s Project HOPE (Housing Opportunities Expanded), has been in place in Albany since 2013. Project HOPE is a critical service to our community and is committed to continuing to provide outreach, engagement and housing services to people experiencing homelessness in Albany during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am thrilled that we have found housing for 10 persons experiencing homelessness. From the very beginning of our response to this crisis, we have expressed our desire to prioritize the most vulnerable among us – seniors and those experiencing homelessness. We continue to do everything we can to continue all necessary services to these populations including providing meals and food.” – Nick Pilch, Mayor of Albany

Albany Project HOPE continues to look after the welfare of all housed clients and conduct outreach to people experiencing homelessness in Albany during the State Shelter in Place order.
