Santa Clara County workers will educate the public about vital county services available to Silicon Valley’s growing low-income community.
Santa Clara County social workers, public health nurses, dietitians, 911 dispatchers and other health and safety workers will offer free information to the community on Wednesday to highlight the continuous need for quality services as affordability for many in the county declines.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 20, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
WHERE: Valley Medical Center (near Valley Specialty Center)
751 S. Bascom Ave, San Jose, CA 95128 (map)
Santa Clara County boasts a rebounding economy, but many of its citizens are marginalized low-income workers who rely on quality public services. The income inequality debate has extended beyond a low-income worker issue—to one that affects the entire community. County workers will have a booth at the Farmers’ Market educating the public on the array of vital services available to Santa Clara County residents.
“The American Dream is slipping away in Santa Clara County. It’s become almost impossible to afford to live here, we struggle to survive. Let’s demand the County fix the inequality—for us, our families and our community!”
— Elba Arciniega, Patient Business Services Clerk, Valley Medical Center
