When it came to nursing, Sasha DuBois felt called to serve. She came from a family of health providers and frontline staff, and she was happiest herself when she was helping someone. “I knew I wanted to be the first and last person by the patient’s bedside,” she recalls.

California delivers Electoral College victory for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris

Monday’s vote was anything but mundane to electors like LaNiece Jones of Oakland. Jones is executive director of the Peralta Colleges Foundation. She was moved by her chance to cast a vote for Harris, who will be the first woman, first Black person and first Indian American to be vice president.
Both Harris and Jones were born in Oakland and both are members of Alpha Kappa Alpha, the politically active Black sorority that mobilized its national network for Biden and Harris. Both are also members of Black Women Organized for Political Action, a 52-year-old organization.
“I’m so excited to be able to ratify the vote for my soror (sorority sister),” Jones said before voting. Noting the historical firsts that Harris represents, Jones said: “Do you know how proud that makes everybody?”

President Trump’s unfounded claims of election fraud were ignored Monday as California delivered Joe Biden the Electoral College votes that put him over the 270 he needed to clinch the presidency.

Family Child Care Grant Application - First 5 Alameda

Family Childcare Grant Program for Alameda County
Application Deadline: Friday, December 4, 2020, 5:00 pm

http://www.first5alameda.org/family-child-care-grant-application

The Alameda County Board of Supervisors approved additional funding for First 5 Alameda County to offer COVID-19 relief to family child care (FCC) providers through the CARES Act. Small FCCs are eligible for awards up to $5,000 and large FCCs can receive up to $10,000. Informational flyers are available in English, Spanish, and Chinese.

Apply by 5:00 pm on December 4th http://www.first5alameda.org/family-child-care-grant-application

As an investment in child care, FCC grants will provide critical support for providers that have served on the frontlines of the pandemic supporting working parents and the local economy, yet are struggling to stay afloat. The Center for American Progress estimates that in California, the average cost to operate a family child care during the COVID-19 pandemic increased by 75%, compared to 54% for center-based care. By strengthening FCC businesses/homes, grants will provide support for families and communities, too.

Visit http://www.first5alameda.org/family-child-care-grant-application to learn more about the Family Childcare Grant Program for Alameda County or to apply.

First 5 Alameda County serves children from birth to age 5, and their families, throughout Alameda County.
