Safe Parking

The Alameda County Safe Parking program offers local community members who are experiencing homelessness with a safe place to park at night and a place to park during the day that isn’t in local neighborhoods, opportunities to engage with resources and services, and a stable community where they can begin to reconnect with their informal support network. To participate in the 24 hour safe parking program participants must register by calling 510-593-4660 or visiting alcosafeparking.org.
