Jonathan Logan Family Foundation Grant Award
BACS is delighted to announce a historic grant from the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation, which awarded BACS $100,000 to support our housing & homeless solutions programs in Oakland.
Additionally, the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation has offered a $50,000 challenge grant. We need community support to help us meet this match. You can make a gift towards this goal and double your impact: donate now!
Thanks to this generous support from the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation, BACS will be able to support homeless individuals through our Housing Fast Support Network, ensuring they have access to all the necessities it takes to move from homelessness to housing.
Case Management Program 25 Year Anniversary
BACS is delighted to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of BACS’ Intensive Care Coordination / Case Management Program. BACS opened our Case Management program in 1993 to fill a crucial need in the community: providing psychiatric services and care coordination for people with severe behavioral health issues and trauma.
Our Intensive Care Coordination programs have made a difference for hundreds of people over the last 24 years. Learn more about our Intensive Care Coordination programs here.
Homelessness Can Happen to Anybody
Veronica has lived in the Bay Area her whole life, and raised her four children here. But when she got into a car accident and could not afford to keep her housing along with her bills, suddenly Veronica was homeless and dealing with addiction to pain medication. She came to BACS to get her life back on track – and today, she works at a hospital, has a home, and is connecting with her family.
Veronica says, “BACS helped me with employment issues. If it wasn’t for BACS, and the staff, I don’t know how I would have done it. BACS always encourages me to keep going to the next level.”
Congratulations on your successes, Veronica!

Marian’s work in the Finance Team helps keep BACS operations running smoothly! Marian says “It gladdens my heart to see our staff smile each time they leave our office. I help employees’ with petty cash and checks to pay for participants needs and other expenses. My favorite part of my job is that from the back end, I do whatever it takes to serve our staff and clients and to ensure BACS is solvent to continue the good work.”
