Shelter Beds Available in West and East Oakland

St. Vincent de Paul Open Again Sunday, Providing Respite for Unsheltered Residents

Oakland, CA – Air quality remains at “unhealthy” levels in Oakland, impacting sensitive and vulnerable populations, including our unsheltered residents. Shelter beds are available at two shelters—one in West Oakland and the other in East Oakland.

The City’s year-round shelter at St. Vincent de Paul, located at 675 23rd Street in West Oakland, has beds available for the homeless tonight. Shelter beds can be secured through referral, reservation, and walk-up on a first come-first served basis. Persons seeking shelter should contact St.Vincent de Paul directly at (510) 638-7600.

In East Oakland, the East Oakland Community Project (EOCP) will open 10 additional shelter beds starting tonight to ensure that we have adequate emergency response for people who are homeless in East Oakland. The beds can be accessed by walking into Crossroads Shelter at 7515 International Blvd.

For unsheltered residents looking for an indoor reprieve from the unhealthy, smoke-laden air, tomorrow St. Vincent de Paul will once again open its doors all day from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm as a drop-in respite center.

In addition, the Main Library, located at 125 14th Street, is scheduled to be open tomorrow from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.
