With a 2022-23 FY operating budget of $1.03B, the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency (HCSA) employs more than 1,700 staff working across four departments: Behavioral Health, Environmental Health, Office of the Agency Director, and Public Health. Headquartered in San Leandro, California, HCSA manages multiple satellite offices across the county to provide a broad range of services that cover people of all ages from all backgrounds. HCSA plays an integral role in supporting a robust and culturally responsive health care safety net across Alameda County through partnerships with more than 300 public, private, and community-based organizations. Our policy, advocacy, and programming efforts are focused on reducing health disparities and increasing health equity.

Major cross-cutting programs cover homelessness, school district partnerships, emergency management, and services for the uninsured.




Assigned to the Office of the Agency Director, the Office of Homeless Care and Coordination (OHCC) works to build an integrated and coordinated system for housing and homelessness services and acts as the County’s point of contact on homelessness strategic planning and program development. OHCC further works to reduce racial disparities and improve health and housing outcomes among people experiencing homelessness by working within HCSA and with other County agencies and departments, cities, community-based organizations, and people who have been homeless in our county. OHCC oversees Coordinated Entry and Housing Services, HUD Continuum of Care administration and Homeless Youth services for the County’s homelessness response system. Health Care for the Homeless (HCH), which sits in OHCC, is a federally-designated health center program offering medical, mental health, dental, optometry, pharmacy, and case management services that are directly provided by staff, and through contracted provider organizations including Alameda Health System and other Federally Qualified Health Centers.

OHCC includes a staff of 87 people and has a current budget of over $90M.
