The Issue:

COVID pandemic has brought challenges and problems to the following services:
  • Underserved Senior Nutrition Program. Due to the government budget-cutting and increasing need for nutritious meals, only an average of 560 boxes of nutritious meals is delivered weekly, 25% lower than the expected number of 700.
  • Underserved Adult Education Services. Limited resources on staff and devices restrain the service scale by 30% on the increasing demand for the Adult Literacy Program and Senior Chinese Tech Classes.
  • Increased Clinic Healthcare Demand. With 60% more patients increased during COVID, limited clinic resources couldn’t meet all healthcare demands.
  • Rising Safety Threat against Asian Community Nationwide, and we are a part of it.
  • COVID Vaccine Demand Slowdown. We are experiencing a much lower registration rate for each clinic. For example, registrants for the next clinic are down to 35 only, a high shrinkage compared to our previous peak number 550.

The Solution:

Project NECSV is initiated to respond to the problems above. Each letter represents the services that need to improve. Specifically, N for “Nutrition”, E for “Education”, C for “Clinic”, S for “Safety”, and V for “Vaccination”.
Proposed activities below to respond to the problems respectively:
  • Seek funds to increase the quality and quantity of nutritious meals, to meet the demand at an average of 700 boxes of meals weekly.
  • Obtain enough funds to purchase 30 tablet devices and allocate extra manpower to expand virtual and in-person teaching sessions for Adult Education Services.
  • Enhance clinic healthcare services of Primary Care, Mental Health, Specialty Programs, and Preventive Care with extra manpower for the newly enrolled patients (over 1,200).
  • Continue the role as the regional leader and partner to promote AAPI community safety.
  • Practice the ongoing outreach and survey monthly in hard-to-reach communities to boost the COVID Vaccine demand.
