Expand outreach and capacity for services. More than 10,000 Coastsiders are over the age of 50 and this number will continue to grow. We are on the front lines of making sure that aging in place is a viable option.
Advocate for Housing, Transportation and Medical opportunities. We have ongoing meetings with the city of Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County and local health care providers to help them understand the current and future issues. We want to increase our visibility in these areas and provide more information to our members about options.
A membership-driven organization as robust as VOTC can’t rely permanently on only on a volunteer staff. Over time, administrative responsibilities lead to burn out, and divert energy from building programs. One major goal is to hire Administrative Staff and we are almost there. We have $33,000 towards a $50,000 goal for hiring someone to take over some of the tasks, like coordinating our Assistance Program and serving as “telephone concierge”.
