As Senior Services Specialist for the Fremont Main Library, I do get asked about low-cost housing. Here are some resources to help anyone and also older adults specifically:
The City of Fremont’s web pages provides links to:
- Below market rate rentals inFremontfor and the
- Directory of Assisted Housing in Southern Alameda County 2010 – 2011, a very helpful guide containing vital information as well as listings.
There’s also a helpful explanation about eligibility income levels.
For the wider Bay Area, either call 211 or go to the Eden I &R website
Calling will connect you with folks who speak Mandarin, Spanish, Vietnamese, and many other languages.
And for older adults, there’s also the Senior Housing Guide published by the Alameda County Area Agency on Aging. The guide contains rentals for the entire county as well as the names of other resources and the local housing authorities.
