Home Together Investment Plan: Local Solutions to Homelessness

In May of 2020 Alameda County Supervisors, the Alameda County office of Homeless Care and Coordination and Homeless Service Providers EveryOne Home and St. Mary's Center hosted a series of Town Hall meetings to introduce the Home Together Investment Plan - a half-cent sales tax proposal for the November 2020 ballot to fund homeless housing and services, and a robust and efficient strategic response to homelessness across the county.


News & Announcements

  • 06/08/2020  Statement from Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan on Police Brutality  As an American citizen, I mourn the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Oscar Grant and the countless other innocent Black Americans that have been lost to police brutality. The nationwide flood of grief, pain, and anger we have witnessed in recent days is a response not only to these most recent tragedies but to a long history of systematic and institutionalized racism in the United States. I stand in full support of Alameda County's Black community in their fight to ensure that no more lives are lost to racial violence and police misconduct. As elected representatives of our County, it's important to remember that the public's trust must always be earned. With that in mind, we must demonstrate our commitment to rejecting systemic racism with every vote we take.
  • 03/03/2021  Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan's Weekly Updates on COVID-19 (March 3, 2021)  Over the weekend, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency authorization for the Johnson & Johnson single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. The Alameda County Health Care Services Agency (HCSA) encourages Alameda County residents to get vaccinated with the first vaccine available to you. Any of the COVID-19 vaccines will help protect your health and decrease your risk of developing severe complications due to COVID-19, including hospitalization and death. Getting vaccinated will help protect all of us from COVID-19 and it is crucial everyone is vaccinated as soon as a vaccine is available to you. In this edition of my weekly update, you can read more about how to sign up to receive your COVID-19 vaccine and updated guidance on youth and adult group sports in Alameda County.
  • 02/24/2021  Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan's Weekly Updates on COVID-19 (February 24, 2021)  I was proud to to introduce a resolution reaffirming Alameda County's commitment to providing a welcoming home for our racially and ethnically diverse community and condemning acts of hate and discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, or cultural basis. Yesterday's vote comes on the heels of another spike in racially motivated crimes against the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, who have been targeted during the COVID-19 pandemic due to false claims the AAPI community is at fault for this public health crisis. There is no racial, ethnic or cultural basis for COVID-19. In an effort to encourage our AAPI communities to speak up and report hate crimes, the Alameda County District Attorney's office has partnered with community members from the Oakland AAPI community to provide services in Cantonese and Mandarin.
  • 02/16/2021  Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan's Weekly Updates on COVID-19 (February 16, 2021)  The COVID-19 mega-vaccination site at the Oakland Coliseum is now open for eligible residents. Eligible residents will need to make an appointment at the Coliseum site through the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)'s MyTurn website. California residents who sign up for MyTurn will also receive a notification on when they may be eligible to receive a vaccine. The Alameda County Health Care Services Agency (HCSA) is working to open vaccine Points of Dispensing (PODs) throughout the county. Appointments at the County PODs will be prioritized for people who are uninsured, from communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, or at high risk of exposure because of where they live or work. In this bulletin, you can read updates from the Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) and find more updates on the COVID-19 vaccines and information on improving your masks' effectiveness in protecting you from COVID-19.
  • 02/09/2021  Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan's Weekly Updates on COVID-19 (February 9, 2021)  With the arrival and continued roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccines, many of us have breathed a collective sigh of relief that the end of this global public health crisis may be in sight. It is crucial now more than ever to take the necessary steps to lower your chances of exposure to COVID-19. The vaccine is a long-awaited tool to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community; however, it is not the only one we have. Ending this pandemic requires us to use all of our tools for stopping the spread of the virus, and I ask everyone to continue doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19. As we near the one-year anniversary of the Shelter in Place ordinance, I would like to express my gratitude to the Alameda County community for continuing to follow these guidelines. Please stay safe so we may gather again in person soon.
