Help Local Families in Your County with a Donation to the
Counties Care Holiday Food Fight
Since 2004, employees of Contra Costa and Solano counties have competed during the holiday season to raise funds for the Food Bank. It's a friendly competition, with the county that raises the most funds per employee winning the Big Apple trophy for one year. The trophy and bragging rights pass back and forth, but the real winners are the hungry of both counties. In the 14 years since the Counties Care challenge began, the total amount raised by employees of both counties is $1,586,102.88. To learn how you can help or to donate,  click here .

Supervisor Andersen Attends CSAC Conference in Sacramento
The CSAC Annual Meeting provides a full program of workshops and policy discussions about issues that matter to counties in California. One of this year's keynote speakers is a familiar face on television and one of broadcasting’s most respected journalists, Jane Pauley who discussed her own struggle with being bi-polar and the need to continue to destigmatize mental illness and find treatments for those suffering from it, just as we seek cures for other diseases.

Active Seniors at The Heritage Downtown in Walnut Creek
Learn About County Issues
The Heritage Downtown, a senior active living community in Walnut Creek with about 125 residents, invited Supervisor Andersen to speak to them on November 1st. The residents were anxious to hear about current events in Contra Costa County, and asked quite a few questions after the presentation.
Head Start Joint Training
On November 1st, Supervisor Andersen, along with Supervisor Diane Burgis, Supervisor Federal Glover, Supervisor Gioa's Chief of Staff Sonia Bustamante, and Supervisor Mitchoff's Deputy Chief of Staff Lia Bristol, attended the Head Start and Early Head Joint Governance Meeting in Concord. Opportunities for families and a vision for future avenues to be explored were discussed.

The County's Community Services Bureau provides comprehensive services for approximately 2,100 children, ages 0-5 and their families each day. This includes education, health, disability and mental health services, nutrition and family support services, and resources to all families enrolled in the program. 

Research confirms that children who attend high-quality early care and education programs are better prepared for Kindergarten. High-quality care and education offers one of the highest returns of any public investment – ranging from $7 to $14 for every dollar spent – by potentially reducing future expenditures on special education, public assistance, and the criminal justice system.

Congratulations to Eagle Scout Ben Clark of Alamo
Ben Clark of Alamo, belonging to Mt. Diablo-Silverado Troop 822, became an Eagle Scout on November 5th.

For his Eagle Project Ben organized a school supply collection for the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland, California. The collected items helped with the ongoing demand for these supplies at the hospital, helping youth with serious and long-term medical needs. While the children are in the hospital they miss school, and are often far away from their homes and families, needing the supplies so that they can do their school work.

As part of Ben's project, he and his fellow scouts distributed flyers to homes in Alamo and Danville announcing the collection drive and asked people to place items for donation on their doorsteps. Ben received help from more than 15 scouts and 8 leaders and together they spent more than 115 hours on this project. Ben was able to deliver over 25 boxes filled with school supplies to Oakland Children's Hospital.

Annual Homeless Point in Time Count
The Continuum of Care Planning, Health, Housing and Homeless Services Division is seeking volunteers to help with the annual Homeless Point in Time Count in late January. Volunteers will be trained on how to administer a short survey and then be stationed at specific community sites with other volunteers to conduct the surveys. This survey provides valuable information on the scope of homelessness, particularly around the number of unsheltered people on the streets and the progress being made to end homelessness. It is also used by local agencies to help plan services and programs appropriately, address strengths and gaps, increase public awareness, and attract resources to help end homelessness.
Volunteers are needed to help conduct surveys on Wednesday, January 24th and Thursday, January 25th. Volunteers who want to participate will need to attend a training the week of January 15th before being able to administer the survey, even if they've volunteered with the Point In Time count before.

In 2018, fifty years will have passed since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. That sobering reminder will serve as a backdrop to Contra Costa County’s 40 th annual commemoration of Dr. King’s life and legacy.  We hope you will make a note to save the date of Tuesday, January 16, 2018, and plan to attend our community celebration.
