“What do you and your family need to thrive in San Mateo County?”

Every parent, child, and senior in San Mateo County deserves to thrive. The costs and barriers to childcare and senior care have left critical needs in the lives of our residents, and when we asked our county’s residents how to support those needs, this is what they shared.

  • Adapted provider requirements
  • Educational pathways, curriculum, and supporting Programs
  • Community engagement and student well-being

Emergency Preparedness

“What do you need before, during, or after an emergency?”

From floods to wildfires, communities in San Mateo County have experienced a variety of situations in recent years that foster a clear community desire to be well-prepared, equipped, and supported when an emergency strikes.

The top five themes raised related to emergency preparedness are:

  • Emergency support
  • Emergency communication planning and preparation
  • Emergency supplies & shelters
  • Infrastructure
  • Reduction of hazards

Housing and Homelessness

“What do your needs related to housing and homelessness?”

With the rising cost of living, residents expressed a wide range of needs, like more housing assistance and shelters. Housing affordability is, without a doubt, a pressing issue, with challenges reaching beyond the availability and cost of homes. This multifaceted crisis touches on rent costs and extends to other areas of daily living and well-being. We need innovative solutions to address and alleviate housing challenges.

The top three themes regarding housing and homeless are:

  • Affordable and accessible housing options
  • High cost of living in the county
  • Evictions and housing assistance
