The Opportunity Center

2507-A Alma Street
Palo Alto, CA - 94301

The Opportunity Center of the Mid peninsula, is an affordable apartment complex and service center for homeless and extremely low income families and individuals.

Supportive Housing

The Opportunity Center includes 88 affordable apartments and a wide range of services for individuals and families who are homeless or very poor. The Opportunity Center is located on Encina Avenue, within walking distance of shopping and downtown Palo Alto's transportation hub.

The ground floor is divided into two service centers — one designed to serve the general homeless and at-risk populations, and one designed to serve homeless and at-risk women, women with children, and families. Services are provided by numerous nonprofit organizations, with InnVision Shelter Network providing overall management and coordination.  In addition, the ground floor houses a medical clinic operated by Peninsula HealthCare Connection, a nonprofit that CWG helped organize to provide medical and psychiatric services for the residents and clients of the Opportunity Center.

CWG pays for utilities, custodial services and maintenance for the service centers on an ongoing basis so that nonprofit partners at the Opportunity Center can focus on providing needed services to their low-income and homeless clients, rather than worrying about rent and upkeep of the facility.
