Last week our School-Based Health Centers’ Youth Advisory Boards hosted two wonderful Healthy Relationships Fairs - one at Encinal High School and one at Alameda High School. Congratulations on the successful events, and thank you to all the students who stopped by. Let’s continue to learn, spread awareness and take action against dating violence. #alamedafamilyservices #TDVAM2022

How’s your heart today? Sending love to everyone out there, including those who feel lonely, are grieving, are single, have a partner, feel down, need closure, miss someone, need space, or are healing. Swipe for some affirmations for Valentine’s Day, and tag a friend who may need the love, too. #alamedafamilyservices

Did you know that February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month? This is when our School-Based Health Center holds one of their biggest campaigns of the year to learn, share information, encourage discussion, and spread awareness about #healthyrelationships and dating violence prevention.

This week is Respect Week, where each day’s focus is about bringing awareness to TDVAM and highlighting the importance of respect when it comes to healthy relationships.

Tomorrow, February 8th, is Wear Orange 4 Love Day! On this day, people across the country wear orange in solidarity to raise awareness about teen dating violence and to stop abuse before it starts. Show your support by wearing orange tomorrow and share your photos using #WearOrange4Love. Tag @sbhc_afs to be entered into their Healthy Relationships Month Raffle! #alamedafamilyservices

Alameda Family Services would like to thank the Alameda Chamber of Commerce and Merlone Geier Partners (Management Company of Alameda South Shore Center) for the generous donation of $5,000. This generous contribution was facilitated by Michael Liberatore, the General Manager. Alameda Family Services was selected along with the Alameda Food Bank (AFB) and Alameda Meals on Wheels (AMOW) to receive donations through Alameda Chamber Foundation. Katherine Schwartz, Alameda Family Services' Executive Director, is pictured here along with Cindy Houts, Executive Director of AFB, and Peri Drake, Executive Director of AMOW.

Alameda Family Services would like to express our deep appreciation and gratitude to Michael and Merlone Geier Partners for helping us kick off our new year with strong financial support.

In times of stress, it can be difficult to find the right words. Check out this useful cheat sheet compiled by the mental health research team from @mentalhealthcoalition of what to say (and what *not* to say) when someone tells you they’ve been exposed to or tested positive for COVID-19.

Remember that vaccines provide strong protection against severe illness and hospitalization. Be sure you are up-to-date on your vaccine and if you have not received your booster, find an appointment today: www.alamedaca.gov/getvaccinated. And always wear a mask in all indoor public settings. Health officials recommend surgical masks or higher-level respirators with a good fit like KN95s or KF94s.

Alameda Family Services is so thrilled about our new partnership with the City of Alameda and the Alameda Fire Department. We believe that the CARE Team model will provide a much needed alternative to police response for mental health crises here in Alameda.

What is the CARE Team?

The CARE Team (Community Assessment Response & Engagement) provides a new way of responding to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. If you’re in crisis or see someone who may be in crisis, call 911 or 510-337-8340, the police non-emergency line, and explain the current situation so our dispatchers can determine if the CARE Team is the appropriate resource to send. If so, a mobile crisis team led by the Alameda Fire Department with a licensed Paramedic and an Emergency Medical Technician trained to respond to individuals experiencing mental health challenges will arrive in a low-profile vehicle. They’ll help the client navigate the best path forward and find resources, including 24/7 clinical care and case management from Alameda Family Services.

In the pilot program’s first 3 weeks, there were 32 calls for service, including 10 calls that used the on-call clinician to support the client on scene. 16 calls were referred by the CARE Team for follow-up case management and 7 clients are actively receiving services as a result. Read more about the CARE Team, including an FAQ with answers to some of the questions we have heard about this new program: www.alamedaca.gov/careteam.

Anyone having a hard time jumping into a super productive routine this week? Try easing yourself into the year one day at a time. You do not have to achieve your 2022 goals right now. These are not normal days. These are not normal weeks. Be patient with yourself. #alamedafamilyservices

We are happy to announce that the Alameda ELCN will be once again hosting its 0-5 Activity Bag Distribution Day on Monday, December 20, 2021. This event will be held at the Alameda Family Services - College of Alameda Child Care Center located on West Campus Drive - 555 Ralph Appezatto Memorial Parkway, Alameda, CA, 94501 from 10 AM - 2 PM.

Activity bags, holiday gifts, and other items donated to support the 0-5 community will be provided to foster parent engagement in early learning during the upcoming holiday season and winter break school closures.

Please note that this event is being held in memory of Supervisor Wilma Chan, who dedicated her life to improving the lives of young children and who helped sponsor these "Year of the Young Child" events during the height of the pandemic. Without her generous support this now annual event would not be possible. #alamedafamilyservices
