Specialized Residential Homes
Bay Area Housing Corp. is a California housing partner providing specialized solutions in the shift from institutional settings to community-based housing for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The need became clear with the historic closure of Agnew’s Developmental Center in March of 2009.
BAHC owns and manages a portfolio of 51 special needs properties. These different models of housing, designed specifically for residents’ unique needs, provide care and supervision 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We work closely with the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS), and the Regional Centers (SARC, GGRC, RCEB) to transition people to these small community-based licensed care homes. All referrals for the individuals living in the homes come from the Regional Centers. BAHC is not involved in that selection process, but acquires, adapts, and manages the properties. The properties are then leased to the service providers.
