San Leandro Adult School's fall Health & Safety Resource Fair supports a healthy and well community
[San Leandro, CA – November 11, 2014] “We want a healthy and well community,” said San Leandro Adult School Vice-Principal Rachelle Parham at the 2014 Health & Safety Resource Fair, held October 30, 2014, at the San Leandro Adult Education Center, where more than 230 students turned out to take advantage of a host of services and information available.
Community agencies and organizations participating in the Resource Fair included Alameda Family Services, which provides emotional, psychological and physical health supports, including CalFresh and MediCal services to those who qualify (this includes mixed documented /undocumented families); the Alameda Fire Department’s Emergency Preparedness Unit, with essential information on earthquake safety and other ways to keep safe in a disaster; the Davis Street Family Resource Center, which provides subsidized child care a sliding scale health and dental clinic, free food pantry and clothing, counseling and other services; the Davis Street Transfer Station, and Alameda County Industries (ACI) which both provided information on recycling; Health Unlimited, a San Leandro health food store, the Salvation Army and TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families).
It is a growing trend in social services to provide a more holistic approach to serve clients, said Ms. Parham. The Health & Safety Fair provided free blood pressure screening, offered by Davis Street Family Resource Center, and helpful “Stress Busters” information from Alameda Family Services. Recognizing that members of their student population are undocumented, the Adult School reassured their clients that this was a safe environment to get information and receive vital services.

Kaiser Permanente provided free flu shots to 100 students; and gave a presentation to a full house on Kaiser’s Child Health Program, which provides health insurance to undocumented children. Offered on a sliding scale to families who qualify, the Child Health Program serves children who are not eligible for public health care coverage such as Medi-Cal, federal financial assistance, or employee-sponsored health care coverage. According to Kim Cunha, Kaiser Business Development Manager, this is the only program of its kind offered in the area. According to Ms. Parham, the San Leandro Adult School does on intake on approximately 600 students annual to determine the individual student’s needs, including educational, financial, health, housing and employment and connects the students to the appropriate services whenever possible. “We are providing our students with the education and training they need to succeed,” said Ms. Parham, “and we recognize the importance of them learning how to find and take advantage of the community resources available to them. This fair is our effort to introduce our families to the Adult School’s new Transition Center, which is slated to open in late November. It’s about education, access, and equity for all of our community.”
