Sited at the former Alameda Naval Base at Alameda Point, Bessie Coleman Court provides permanent apartment units to formerly homeless survivors of domestic violence with deep needs. All residents living at Bessie Coleman Court receive case management and access to a range of services including support groups, community gatherings, clothing, and household items, and life skills training. AHA provides housing vouchers to select Bessie Coleman residents.
