Berkeley Drop-In Center

Berkeley Drop-In Center

A multipurpose community center run by and for current and former mental health clients and people undergoing significant emotional distress.  The Center is a safe, informal place for community members to meet and socialize, share peer and group support, take part in recreational and social activities, and get assistance in obtaining basic survival and other life needs.  A primary objective of the Center is finding permanent housing and maintaining that housing for our members.

The Berkeley Drop-In Center is based on the self-help model.  All staff members are people with lived experience with mental health issues and most have been homeless.  All programs and policy decisions are made through membership meetings, special focus meetings, and the Board of Directors, 70 percent of whom are mental health clients.

Housing Advocacy:

  • Provide assistance to members in obtaining permanent housing through referrals and information.
  • Continue to support members once they are housed to ensure housing is maintained
