Since 1998, the City provides a unique service to meet the needs of our growing and diverse community. The Multilingual Community Outreach Program, which is unique in the Bay Area, provides City and community information to residents in four languages—English, Spanish, Chinese, and Russian, regarding City programs and services. In effort to reach residents, particularly individuals who might not be reached through traditional communication methods, services include: attendance at City and community events, outreach to schools and non-profits, and City program translation and interpretation services. Information is provided on City Services, Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) classes, City events, childcare, housing, as well as mediation services and other topics in person and by phone at (650) 903-6145.
