Social Service Human Relations Board

The City Charter established the Social Service Human Relations Board (SSHRB) to assess the social-service needs of the people of Alameda and report those needs to the City Council. The board also encourages the formation of private social welfare organizations to help fulfill any unmet needs. 

The board is conducting an online survey to help gauge housing, community development and social-service needs. SSHRB will use this Information to prepare its recommendations to the City Council.

 

The City of Alameda Social Service Human Relations Board, working in partnership with the Alameda Unified School District, Alameda Youth Collaborative and Alameda’s social services organizations is conducting an online survey regarding the housing, community development and social service needs in Alameda.

In a time of dwindling resources and increasing needs, it is more important than ever the residents of Alameda have a voice in how the city invests federal and other funding received for these programs and services.

 

The City Council is soliciting applications from residents who would like to serve on the Social Service Human Relations Board (SSHRB). Interested persons are encouraged to apply by Thursday, Dec. 1. 

Members of the Social Service Human Relations Board work to create an environment that will encourage and bring about mutual understanding, respect and goodwill among groups of people in the community and improve social services in the community.
