Press release from the Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services:

The Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services Mobile Outreach team is joining local agencies for an event in Hoopa. The effort is in response to the community’s reduced access to resources following the closure of the Hoopa Ray’s Food Place last month.

The Mobile Outreach vehicle will set up in the former supermarket’s parking lot on Wednesday, July 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Mobile Outreach will join staff from the UC Cooperative Extension Master Food Preserver program. There will be demonstrations about food canning, dehydration and other preservation techniques. Food for People will be on location distributing farm fresh produce.

Mobile Outreach vehicles bring DHHS services and supports to outlying communities, to reduce the need to travel to Eureka for health and human services. Staff provide a range of services depending on community need and can assist with CalFresh, Medi-Cal, In-Home Supportive Services, veterans services and child support. Humboldt County mental health clinicians can also provide on-board counseling and link clients up with case management.

For additional information, contact Mobile Outreach at 707-441-4650.

  • Thank you. Some in the community need this greatly.

  • Looks like two good budget cuts.

  • Hoopa really needs this,(me included,)right now.. We need a damn store that’s not cheating us with high prices..!!!

  • Good luck getting ANY store! Low population and high theft rate, plus they have to deal with all of the Tribal stuff.

  • Visit the IHSS.CA facebook community user support page, managed by volunteer Recipients and Care-providers like you.

    Learn what IHSS ans UNION are not telling recipients and careproviders, share tips and experiences, and be more informed and aware of your rights, methods, and options.

    2 laws that ihss and union officials failed to instruct and mail notices as required by law:

    Union is optional since june 2014.
    And
    All live in providers qualify for 2014-7 exempt status, and need to take action. File new w4 exempt and never enter live in income on wages earned income on tax returns.

    No one should have to navigate the choppy waters of IHSS alone. Mesg page or see pinned post, for more information. All content is public, no membership required. See government and trusted source links on all posts. Thank you.
