Oakland’s Community Cabin Program is a network of temporary transitional shelters at six sites across the city, designed to help stabilize unhoused people and assist in the finding of permanent housing. Launched in late 2017, the Community Cabins are part of a multi-prong strategy in the city to house people. Beyond cabins, the City of Oakland has opened three safe RV parking sites and a trailer site for 67 state-owned trailers.

Yesterday, Oakland City officials, community leaders, and community members came together to highlight the occupancy status of the Lake Merritt Lodge. The City established Lake Merritt Lodge as a site for emergency COVID-19 response housing, intended to keep our most vulnerable homeless community members safe. The 92-unit building is now at full occupancy.
