I hope that this email finds you well. I wanted to quickly update you on the status of 4Cs of Alameda County's offices, programs, and services as we adhere to and navigate the shelter-in-place order in Alameda County (you can find details about specific programs below). While 4Cs of Alameda County's offices are now CLOSED until at least April 8th or when the local shelter-in-place order is lifted,
are still hard at work remotely to respond to your needs and making sure that our families with parents working in critical roles in the county still have access to child care. We have a robust
with lots of activity ideas to keep little ones busy and learning through play at home during this unprecedented time. 4Cs staff are working to make sure that child care providers are receiving the support they need as well including making sure payments are mailed out for providers caring for little ones on our Child Care Payment Programs. In-person support programs for our community members have been put on hold, but we do have helpful information for folks who still need
tax preparation assistance
, our CalFresh and HPN staff are standing by to help, and you can still
take the Census
from the comfort of your own home. You can find a
COVID-19 Resources page
on our website and I urge to to use the links provided as tools to stay informed on this ever-changing time.
Finally, please be kind to yourself. Practicing self-care is so critical at this time. Call a friend, take a walk, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. This too, shall pass and I have faith we will all come together as an even stronger community of neighbors and friends on the other side.
