Formerly Berkeley Food & Housing Project
The Hope Center is part of a joint development between Insight Housing (originally as Berkeley Food & Housing) and BRIDGE Housing. The entire project integrates a continuum of affordable and very low-income housing into the fabric of a vibrant downtown community, rich in transit and services.
This 6 bedroom, 3 bath house in Rio Vista provides a permanent home for local veterans. Insight Housing staff provide ongoing support services to the residents. This home was built in partnership with Solano-Napa Habitat for Humanity, American Legion Post 178, Solano County, and the City of Rio Vista.
Currently undergoing renovation, Dwight Way Center will be the home to our Emergency Housing for Women, Board & Care for individuals with serious mental health diagnoses, and a transitional housing program for Veterans.
Insight Housing is a member of the North Berkeley Housing Partners (NBHP), a collective of affordable housing developers, market rate developers, and resident service providers that consists of Insight Housing, BRIDGE Housing, EBALDC, and AvalonBay Communities. NBHP is excited to be a part of the re-imagining of the North Berkeley BART Station for Transit-Oriented Development. We believe this site is an extraordinary opportunity to deliver on BART and the City of Berkeley’s vision for a new mixed-income community. Given the importance of this site, we firmly believe the project requires a team with a proven track record of success with BART, culturally competent community engagement, and organizational and financial capacity to commit to a multi-phase master planned project.
Throughout our history our ability to serve those in need has been a group effort. Donations of all kinds and volunteers are greatly appreciated, effective and allow us to pursue our mission to make a positive impact.Get involved
