We recognize that residents are more than mere consumers of public health services. In addition to health services, our health department is involved in a variety of community-based activities that engage residents in the planning, evaluation and implementation of health activities in their communities. Many of those services and activities are profiled on this site.
Purple Ribbon, an initiative of the Family Justice Center and other Alameda County partners, provides victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, family and interpersonal violence a slate of services, including help with immigration, employment, child and elder abuse; legal assistance with restraining orders; safety planning; domestic violence and stalking support; counseling; survivor training, and more. Purple Ribbon also helps clients apply for Medi-CAL and Cal-FRESH in a safe and secure environment. The center is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. - no appointment needed. Learn more »
Covered California Open Enrollment
Open enrollment for 2015 health insurance plans through Covered California runs Nov. 15, 2014 through Feb. 15, 2015. Medi-Cal members must renew their coverage each year to keep their health care benefits. An enrollment packet will be mailed to members who can return their information by mail, fax, phone, or in person. For individuals who were Medi-Cal members before 2014 your county will try to renew you automatically, but additional information may be needed. Remember: Renewal forms must be submitted to avoid disruption of your health care coverage. Visit Covered California »
