“My mother experienced more joy at the center than she has in the last 15 years! The kindness of the staff and the innovative programs seemed to give my mother an aliveness that was lost.” – Family Caregiver


Adult care center providers in Alameda County who recognized the value of collaboration in their shared mission founded the organization in 1993. Initial programs included marketing to raise awareness, staff training, outcomes data studies, and participant scholarships.

Over its 20-year history, the organization has provided leadership and helped raise the visibility of adult care centers in the County. We have studied trends and taken advantage of opportunities for program expansion, responded to participant and family needs, and joined advocacy efforts to protect against negative fiscal and policy developments. Our Board of Directors is highly engaged and represents a powerhouse of skills and experience to guide the organization through dramatic periods of change.

As the organization has matured, our essential mission and activities have remained the same. Our work focuses on two main areas: 1) Ensuring broad access to care through information, planning and advocacy; and 2) Strengthening the depth and quality of care provided in local centers through program initiatives, including falls prevention, medication safety, and caregiver support.

In 2014, the organization was renamed DayBreak Adult Care Centers, and we introduced a new logo and branding identity to more clearly communicate the positive and uplifting benefits of what we do. Today, DayBreak and its member centers continue to play a vital role in the community system of care and safety net that protects the health and dignity of the County’s ethnically diverse, low-income, elderly and disabled populations.
