The Great Oakland Check-in: Volunteer to check-in on our neighbors

Join us as we embark on the Great Oakland Check In. Starting this Saturday, we’re going to train volunteers to call vulnerable Oaklander's at their homes to do two things: Check in on their wellness and encourage them to fill out their Census form.

Our goal is to reach 35,000 seniors and vulnerable families across our city. To learn more about the historic effort, read more here.
