What We Do » Bay Area Housing Corporation

What We DoBay Area Housing Corporation creates opportunities to build, renovate, and identify houses and apartment buildings that fit the lifestyles of disabled and low income residents. Rather than simply responding to people that seek us out, our staff reaches out to bring more people into our organization. We invite people to meet with us and achieve success through our services. We thrive on investing in homes that need major TLC as well as simple modifications.

There are currently 4 models of housing provided by BAHC with care and supervision provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. BAHC owns and operates the homes and a service provider delivers the service. All referrals for the individuals living in the homes come from San Andreas Regional Center.

Property Management

Property ManagementWe have a reliable property management department that provides high quality and affordable maintenance and repairs. We send out our best to ensure property repairs are done promptly, energy efficiency standards are met, and tenants are abiding by their rental agreements. Maintaining a consistent service schedule helps to avoid major problems and ensures our residents stay in their homes long term.

We have a customized database that allows us to track all repairs, including costs of labor and materials, and to generate financial reports. We can set up a database for you or your organization for a fee that covers the cost of set up and monthly management of your database.

We are also available to provide consultation to help you modify your home to accommodate the needs of your loved ones. Our experience in maintaining residential care homes for a demographic that is pretty hard on the interior finishes, has given us expertise in identifying the best and most affordable products and finishes that are durable, practical, safe and also beautiful.

Advocacy

AdvocacyBAHC has been a tireless advocate for creating new housing opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. We have worked with legislators at both the state and local level to educate and advocate for housing options and funding.
Most people do not know the unique needs of people with developmental disabilities and other low income populations.

Kris McCann, the Executive Director of BAHC is currently the Co-Chair of the state-wide Lanterman Housing Alliance, (http://www.lantermanhousingalliance.org/ which advocates for housing for people with developmental disabilities in the State of California.

Things that you can do to advocate for people with developmental disabilities.

  • Think globally, act locally… take action today for benefit of your loved one with the mindset that you are paving the path to help others do the same in the near future
  • Everyone is impacted by the growing number of people with developmental disabilities, and there is a benefit that we need to communicate to the world around us: there is an economic benefit of saving public funds when people with developmental disabilities are properly housed, and supported
  • Focus on legislation to create state tax incentives for families to invest in trusts
  • Access more private funds such as the local Community Foundations that pool funds from private donors
