Sally's Place - Peer Respite Home


Sally's Place Peer Respite Home is the first and only of its kind in Alameda County. It is staffed by peers, in alignment with the objectives of the Pool of Consumer Champions (POCC) and the Alameda County Accelerated Peer Specialist Program (ACAPS).

Sally’s Place is named for Sally Zinman, a pioneer of the peer-led services movement. Her pivotal work spanning more than 40 years has been an inspiration to consumers and providers alike. Our systems are immeasurably better as a result of her advocacy and legacy.
