    Do Not merge Adult and Aging Services with Families and Youth:
    Seniors have complex needs of our own
    Seniors are the most at-risk population for homelessness
    Seniors are the most vulnerable for COVID, influenza, falls and behavior & mental health issues
    We are over 25% of the population of Oakland and will be 30% by the end of this decade.
    We saw during COVID the effects of not paying enough attention and resources on our older adult population; let's learn from that and continue to elevate and support seniors
    Seniors need to be seen and our programs need to be whole to stay whole.
    Fund the two frozen positions in Adult & Aging Services:
    Administrator -
    The MCOA is struggling to engage our hundred+ stakeholders contributing to our Livable Oakland initiative without administrative assistance.
    Livable Oakland is helping identify and remove programmatic and physical barriers to participation for all people. It's important work and we need support. MCOA is the only Commission without an administrator to assist.
    Plus there are scores of senior services providers and contractors for the senior centers that need coordinating.

    Senior Services Program Analyst.
    The program analyst position is secured with matching funds from an Americorps grant
    This person currently runs Get Up and Go senior taxi script program, foster grandparents and Senior companion programs.
    This person should definitely be funded or we risk eliminating these programs and the matching funds!
