12:06 pm
awards for that program two national awards for the program in one week is pretty great. >> yep. >> the other thing is we're partnering with the alzheimer's association and the adding we put in a new proposal to the administration for community living to do work with on around alzheimer's and dementia and really the alzheimer's association approached us to partner with them we we asked the adding to partner 3 goals one is to reach out to people living in isolation in terms of part of the vision of the department and the second to implement evidence based programs and alzheimer's association has a program called savvy caregiver and so they'll be reaching out to more people
12:07 pm
that - and the third is to partner with an - well to reach out to people intellectual and others disabilities as they age people are experiencing alzheimer's and dementia and different levels for people that are living with disabilities so we pandered with the adrc and got that that in and we'll hear in a month if we receive that grant i think that is, i guess the third thing cindy will talk about this i forgot they didn't meet in 0 july the board of supervisors passed the dignity fund that basically means the ballot measure that will go on the ballot in november and sandy will talk about the process but basically with the process the
12:08 pm
mayor and the board the funding coalition and anyone else that is interested in helping to make sure that passes will be working together to try to get as much support as possible and educate the voters about the dignity fund and the importance of it so sandy think will speak on the agenda and will be talking about it that concludes my report. >> commissioners. >> well. >> commissioner ow. >> commissioner sherren the grant that you working with alzheimer's who are you asking the money and how much for . >> from the administration for community living i believe is marlth here i believe that is between 8 hundred thousand and

one million dollars it do so to dos but we'll have a lot of it to the alzheimer's and the arc dos will be the administrator of the fund. >> commissioner. >> yes. congratulations to all of these awards who is the select person or the select our. >> the who selects the winners. >> yes. >> so the board of the national association of area agrees on aging reviews the applications and makes the awards. >> that's good. >> any other questions. >> i just had one i guess maybe she might have answered in the report how is the dignity fund the difference in the campaign the living fund how
12:10 pm
when they both are supposed to help the patients older americans stay in their homes how are we're going to - what will be the difference in terms of the two candidates and a dignity fund. >> so in the community living fund versus the dignity the communicating u community living fund is something that dos administers and the institute on aging has no of the fund in the doesn't even case management and people need to stay at home the dignity fund can be a lot more than that and sandy will talk about that to fill gaps or used to address waiting lists this is not limited to the thing that the community living fund is it is confusing they're both called
12:11 pm
fund. >> each year i think it will be kind of - you need to be clear as to how the two differ and how they shall i say that how the clients will benefit from it and . >> absolutely i think that is part campaign so how the money will benefit people. >> any other questions. >> thank you next we'll have the employee recognitions the department of aging & adult services honor is that linda tang if dos and all the support office services .
12:12 pm
>> (clapping.) >> so linda i want you to know that commissioner president james does not decrees pat risking for everyone this is a special day. >> linda's has been with in-home care support services and now a member of dos; right? i want to take the opportunity talk about this because it is in-home care supportive services that moved there but not in-home care supportive services but part of our service center that is means they're providing medicaid services like some of the other programs in the human
12:13 pm
services agency i was wondering if other people from that agency are here if they could stand up >> (clapping.) >> so we call it internally it is the dos resource hub what they do at the dos resource center hub do the eligibility for adult disabilities around medicaid and in-home care supportive services and calfresh and really trying to help people aging out of the medi-cal help them understand the services they might be able to get insurance helping them on medicare all of the things what are the option and in addition there are also doing information and referral they're doing referrals to department of aging & adult services to our meals

programs to case management and all of those things we do so it is one of the places to come for any service that dos has any that the american services has and in addition it is part of a greater hub the hub of a greater system the aging and disabled resource centers it is important work and t golf an important site with the services we have so linda is an information person she's someone that everyone comes to with help more information she's an expert be database and so that's why she's getting the award people realize would you say her expertise we'll be worse off but not just about her knowledge but willingness to pitch in and do all kinds of things helping with
12:15 pm
the alzheimer's or helping someone with information all of those i think i want to say one thing in particular linda the planning unit has asked me to is a say something about our knowledge and willingness is stand up and they wanted to say thank you so i'm going to read what >> (clapping.) >> - >> what the person or the people that wrote that was not a good sentence and congratulated with a degree in computer service and joined in-home care in march of 2007 and compassionate person towards the clients also contributing her computer skills to make that prerequisite efficiently and assaults the staff in making our jobs more efficient and maintenance the case management

12:29 pm
tortured that's - you know out of place really just you know it is reasonable you know other this is been years and years of study i've been true and because recreations of you know damage medically and file number to make sure that business doesn't progress as much you know way maintain our world in level you know conversation and going on too long in our
12:30 pm
review and this is a very necessary you know just level - on this issue of new creations of doing things you know doesn't disturb our medical and physical. >> thank you thank you next on the agenda is old business we had a date on the business charter amendment sandy. >> morning commissioner president james and members of the commission and director making fasten i'll hear reporting the coalition many of the members are here at your meeting and wanted to give you
12:31 pm
an update on the d b fund charter amendment we got a support from the board of supervisors which is part of the progress to get on the ballot we were able to an july the 19 get 9 votes of the supervisors to move this forward to put on the ballot in november there was the first big step we had to get over now then we - last week, we went before the ballot certification committee that group responsibility is to make the language on the ballot very understandable to the average voter at a eight grade level of contention there are 5 two women that are versed in the words and english and grammar and very good about changing the language
12:32 pm
it is very clear even though this particular charter amendment can be complicated in the especially the physical aspects of is this will go forward on the ballot in terms of language so this new language will be available to the public on august the 15 as we move forward with this charter amendment now we're into the campaign mode which many of you have been involved i'll give you the outlines of what that entails continue now and november we will be going out to various groups for combroerms and various neighborhood group and center centers any organization that point the presentations from the dignity fund coalition members to present to their group about this participate initiative to o so there is an awareness and given information about this to
12:33 pm
get voters to support it this particular initiative requires 50 percent plus one of the vote it is doable but as you may know you never assume anything in an election and we have to make sure that every vote every one votes number one and number 2 november election we have presidential more people out to vote this time in addition, we have to be aware of there are many, many, many other initiatives on the ballot and over 37 issues on the ballot just on san francisco alone then the state has their issues which i think is about 13 or 14 i don't know the exact number but it will be a huge long ballot so our concern is that you have voertsdz fatigue and people will say i'm just
12:34 pm
going to vote no, no, no all over the place we're coming up with was to be distinctive whether buttons or wrist watch bands to promote this issue we have not, of course, been designated a letter yet that will happen on august 15th where the department of the elections they'll select a number you'll be given for excuse me - the letter you'll be given for this initiative whether it is a prop a or prop b we would like to have b but it is difficult to assure that when it is a lottery so as you may know any campaign as far as fund-raising that's
12:35 pm
one of the issues we're starting to work on and in addition getting the endorsements and reaching out to all the areas we have a group that is going took working closely with director mcfadden in terms of if this is passed a lot of implementation that will be done administratively through the department and partner with the departments in terms of that implements phase one of the parts of that implementation is to increase the staffing of your department in other words, to administer this new fund your department will require more staffing and that's going to be a big goal for your department staff to be working on we will be hiring staff for the campaigns that is something that will be coming down the pike very soon we're working on that
12:36 pm
but let me give you the overview of the actual charter amendment this is the part that is complicate it has to do with with the financing the baseline budget is about $38 million and so with this charter amendment will do this baseline amount - the city will not be able to go below that amount of the baseline for the department, in fact, it will grow for the first year for fiscal year 2017-2018 we'll be the first fiscal year of implementation it will grow by $6 million and after that for 10 years it will grow $3 million each year so the total by the way, a sunset of 20 years bends
12:37 pm
the 20 years reaching as much as $72 million by the end of 20 years now this particular fund is separate from your regular overall budget for your department the dignity fund will be overseeing not only by you as a commission has the final say so in our department including the implementation and the dissemination of funds from the dignity fund you have a huge responsibility your budget will be increased and any time an increase in the budget a lot more say so in terms of where the money goes but part of that process of implementing in this particular charter amendment you'll have an oversight advisory committee of lovingly people and out of lovingly people will have people from
12:38 pm
different aspects of the aging and younger disabled entities in san francisco for example, your commission will have from our commission you'll get to appoint two people from our commission to be on this particular body and in addition to the two of you then we'll have the mayor will have 3 at large appointments so the mayor gets to appoint the 3 at large and select 3 from the doris advisory council so your advisory council will select 3 on this oversight committee and then the long term care corresponding council as 3 representatives all in all, all
12:39 pm
the representatives will help to have transparency, the whole issue of equity meaning equity amongst the neighborhood equity doesn't all the different neighborhoods all 11 supervisorial neighborhood and that's as you may know even now we have situations where neighborhoods don't have a lot of services in those neighborhoods so that needs to change so this is going to be part of that process so i want to open up for questions commissioners that you have i'll answer them. >> supervisor. >> thank you it is good to see you so this additional funding come out of the general fund part of general fund. >> okay so commissioner on this issue originally we wanted to ask the voters to set aside 2 percent of property tax that's changed the
12:40 pm
reason it changed the controller and mayor's office convinced us to use another method the ad r the agency congratulate fund that's the general fund the funds will come out of that revenue flow and not from the property tax when you look at the comparison for the last 12 years the amount from the property tax and the millennium if the general fund are about the same not too much difference whatever the way we did it the controller was the entities that convinced us this is a better way to go and the controller as you may know knows where all the money is and the controller is the unbiased they're not answerable to the mayor or the board of sups their
12:41 pm
unbiased in terms of giving information about the physical health of the city and to make sure i understand it means then 3 this will be another set aside from the general fund. >> yes. >> over which meaning that the pools in the general fund that the mayor and the board of supervisors can allocate the different services will be reduced. >> that's correct. >> okay. >> and one other question the two supervisors that voted against it what was the reason for voting against. >> the two supervisors vote against they find a principle of not spoepts the set aside for the parks that of passed in june because when it comes to set aside most of you may know that is now about 40 percent of our budget is consisted of set aside as we go out into the communities and we talk about the absorb that will be raised
12:42 pm
we've got to be able to respond to the voters on that point. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> commissioner singh. >> yes. will the campaign committee select a campaign community and professional. >> yes. >> yes have you made that selection yet. >> no. we're in the process of accepting resumes we want to do that quickly we want to get this going. >> commissioner ow. >> yes. i heard that encouraging this commission member is nominated by the mayor i heard something when this dignity fund is become effective the supervisor will nominate some member of this commission.
12:43 pm
>> no commissioner ow that particular idea was originally thought about and included as we continued to talk with the mayors staff and the board of supervisors that it was decided to not to persian that and is it was taken out i'll say there are members of the board who will support that but not enough numbers to like have 6 votes. >> and i just want to be clear i heard you the first year the funding will be 38 new units; is that correct. >> that is $38 million that fiscal year into 2016-2017 usual baseline is the $38 million this particular fund will not go into effect until 2017-2018 in
12:44 pm
2017-2018 do city will contributed an additional $6 million to that $38 million and every year after that $3 million cumulative for 3 years. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> commissioner loo. >> you mentioned the money is coupling off the general fund. >> yes. >> it will be really a hot selling point people will think that means more money where are they getting more money from taxing the people. >> no tax increase as a result that's not a taxation increase initiative so we're making that clear but your initials comments is well-taken the city as a whole between the board and the mayor has to make the tough
12:45 pm
decisions where the cuts come from they still have to make the decisions but you know the reason why this community of seniors and younger disabled decided to go this route we're tired of having to fight for crumbs every year over 45 years we've been doing this this is the same thing people who are elected people you know they're all good people and they all say we support seniors and younger disabled but when it comes to the money it's not there for those populations we're including hiv, we're including the veterans and all the populations because there are 60 and older now a lot of people who have been here for generations they're all older now and should be able to live in san francisco and age with dignity and age in their neighborhood and homes and
12:46 pm
apartments this is what this fund is trying to do i have to say that is is beginning the amount of money we're talking about is a good beginning for this issue because the numbers are just going to go up and this country is not ready city and county of san francisco will be one be the first city in intercity urban area to have this kind of a fiscal policy a huge commitment and we think it is warranted because of the population 25 percent of our population which is now 8 hundreds and 11 thousand 25 percent of those that population are over 60 or younger or disabilities i think that population need to be recognized and we're talking about people who have been here a long time not the new you know new people
12:47 pm
that have been here for the last 5 years but generations of people. >> yes. i have a question what happened if this does pass. >> what's the alternative. >> if it didn't pass we'll daubd daubd you know one of the - yeah. i think this group the coalition members that are have been on board as far we're willing to look at if we don't win that's why we're putting the effort we have to win this election. >> i have - have we thought about maybe i guess this has - not - you can't do it probably like san francisco general with
12:48 pm
matching up the zuckerberg's this is the ongoing not a one time so - you might want to think of some alternative you know possibility. >> philanthropists are welcome to this particular campaign that's for sure we have a list of people we're approaching on that aspect there are generous philanthropists in the bay area. >> yeah. a good question. >> yes. i do have a short one this time fortunately, we have 9 supervisors signed up for it and we can put on the board what's the minimum 6. >> 6. >> okay. last question for you can the mayor by himself you know future mayor put this kind
12:49 pm
of legislation just by one mayor. >> no the mayor didn't have the authority it is the board of supervisors that's why one of the methods to get on the ballot through the supervisors and we thought that was the most expeditious way but we do after this experience we do find that there's a lot of politics involved and when it gets to that level it has gotten to have the votes that we have to be very pen active to not only the issues buy the politics comes in about the relations amongst the supervisors or what is going on at the time because there were many, many issue that many supervisors wanted to put on the ballot you know there's a lot of different opinions going on about other issues too so it all effects each other we're in the middle of all of that we were
12:50 pm
you know we were snapchat at city hall they know who we are and also i think important for all of us who are advocates in the community to understand that the political reality is that seniors and younger, disability don't have political power in the city the perspective is that it is there because seniors vote we know that but when it comes to organizing and like going downtowns halls it is not that way they say, of course, we'll support seniors but which that came down to the vote people were jumping if we are learning that this is part of political process in san francisco we know that san francisco is very unique in its situation with politics but we have to be aware and have to be sophisticated to
12:51 pm
deal with that. >> commissioner sims. >> you talked seek endorsements from individual and organization in town sandy it occurs to me that nonprofits organizations in particular don't make such endorsements without board approval and board meetings happy e happen and a less than everyday basis so someone within the team or some place coordinating the schedules to get those on agendas. >> the 43 organizations commissioner that we have listed now have all gone through the process their internal process we did that but now you know we're looking towards other newer groups or groups that have not heard come on board and so it is one like for example, there was about 14 organizations that helped to put together the
12:52 pm
money between two weeks and the poll we did we hired a professional polster to dots poll that 69 to 79 will support the set aside so for the seniors and younger attacked they came up with the $37,000 plus within a couple of weeks a quick taller than the time but many other organizations that have not gone through the process some organizations are different commissioner and sometimes an executive director what make that decision they're allowed to do that it depends on the organization policy. >> thank you. >> commissioner loo. >> sifrnd how many people are working in our coalition to do this and second what how soon do
12:53 pm
you have to approve the advisory executive. >> the number of people i'd like to the core is about 20 people and they're all volunteers okay so we plan to hire as i mentioned to commissioner sims we plan to hire a political consulate and have to hire one or two other people to work with that person to do a lot of the really hard labor stuff but the 15 core people we then kind of fan out and bring in all the volunteers and all the different neighborhoods or organizations you know all of our resources and all our networks to come and participate and help out that's kind of like the volunteer base and you know this is got to be a
12:54 pm
volunteer base campaign but your other question about the implementation the implementation because the funding would be for 17, 18, 2017-2018 in 2016, 2018 to get everything ready this is the beginning of certain things we'll work on to try to you know partner with the department in have the 11 person committee ready to go and in addition to that 11 person advisory oversight committee a separate provider group that will consist of only service providers u v or staff different organizations that do services for the population and that service will be an ongoing entity that gives input into the priorities,
12:55 pm
needs, planning issues so you know a lot of need assessment and mr. larkin we want to work together with the department. >> the contributions trek. >> no. >> thank you oh, commissioners. >> thank you for a helpful report and sharing our expertise people on the commission and people that want to keep updated on what is going on what's the best way to follow. >> we have a website if you want us to put you on our information list i'll be happy to do that commissioner that way you know steak what is going on we have monthly meeting the second wednesday of every month at the research center from 2:30 to 4:30 that's a set meeting all welcome and average thirty people attending those meetings
12:56 pm
but going to hopefully get bigger and bigger it is really all about community organizing i know you know about thisless community organizing but let me know if you want us to put that. >> thank you. we'll move on with the agenda okay. new business all action items require a vote a request and authorization to enter into a new grant of family terrifies 19 services for the provision of 2 golf street community liaisons during august one 2016 through june 30th, 2017, in the amount of $58,000 plus a 10 percent for a total, 201164 thousand dollars plus can i have a motion to discuss.
12:57 pm
>> so moved and - >> good morning, commissioners i'm mike from dos here to present on this item as was mentioned earlier the dos research hub has been opened and sherren highlighted an array of dos services and other city services and the contract for a new pilot program for provision for part time employment opportunities for seniors and younger adults at the hub the liaisons will enhance service flow and consumer experience for the clients coming up the hub services in the commission packet some bulletin helping clients navigate through the center itself getting client feedback as to their experience

questions commissioner loo. >> just a general comment that is quite high the cost the total is $70 and 63 cents for back i'm reading the budget sheet and on those the office on aging is giving the funding is $19 and 64 cents back i'm wondering why the cost is so high i know in the brandish food bank is putting a lot of money into this project. >> yes. one of the when you look at the dos opportunity portion under $20 a bag that pays for off the infrastructure in the staff working with the different partners and also covering some of the food costs little food bank is able to leverage a lot of the dominated
1:43 pm
food and use a lot of volunteers to help them with the bagging and a lot of the service needed in this providing this program so you know it is leveraging a lot of food costs a lot of them with volunteers and some are donated through the manufacturers and different growers so it is a while we're trying to show what the true costs of program through the non-restricted dos resident itself of that. >> thank you. any other questions or comments from the commission. >> knowing i'll in the field i hear a lot about that my concern who carries the liability insurance i don't know why i'm - >> (laughter). but you know the food bhangs
1:44 pm
liability insurance and it requires actually all of the contractors so >> the food bank. >> the question you know as to one of the - one of the agencies just stopped one of the agencies stopped serving the boxes so i was concerned whether the department our department either funds the liability or the food banks i'm not sure i want to make sure that they are covered you know that is covered because small business did get hurt i understand. >> not my area of expertise i think that counteracting folks will be able to answer that better. >> i want to know why - >> good morning commissioner president james for all the contractors required to have
1:45 pm
insurance to certify so the normal coverages are gentle liquidate auto and workers' compensation and certain contracted that involve the money management that requires bonds so the standard is the general liability so they're required to have that. >> they're required to have that; right? a lot of the nonprofits say we don't have it so i was wondering you know. >> they should have that has a requirement to get a contract the city requirements if they're a nonprofit not receiving money through the city contract they marketing have it. >> maybe they're not accepting it because you know don't want to apply to handle this because they don't have it interest okay. >> thank you thank you commissioner sims. >> this is there are 3
1:46 pm
programs today that have delivered grocery. >> correct. >> and the cost per bag was a question i kind of had that kate brought up but in this particular budget you call out the cost from the dos related funds the other two programs don't have augmented funding in their budget proposals and at least one of them is significantly less expensive on a cost per bag it begs the questions around why this might be the case. >> as we go to the contract i can clarify the other two they're really only paying for the maybe the staff or the coordinator to help to provide that note providing the food the food bank this contract provides the grocery bags for all the other home partners like the golden gate senior
1:47 pm
services and the chinatown program and any other go questions or comments. >> yes. i guess the other thing i'm concerned is that the bags the culturally sensitive for the food the chinese the african-americans might need it it take into consideration. >> to a small extent they try to you know for example, in the sro food pantry grocery program they incorporate more some of the products for culturally focused for this population with this home grocery program it is serving almost citywide in the sense so you know i don't know there is a food bank staff here today
1:48 pm
as you because some people take out the simple you know they don't want sometimes put on the streets and sometimes you know it is sold so that was my concern. >> so andy from the food bank and can address some of the concerns. >> good morning. i'm andy burns from the home delivery grocery program in terms of the culture competent the bags are standardized we have a few options we allow the delivery partners to select in terms of what kind of product they want for example, a choice between either a bean or four weeks out of each month and one month serving have to if you and 3 beans and one tofu - so a small

over the place bear with me catholic charities is in favor of the daycare collaborative that is a monthly gwen of adult daycare providers to talk about issues specific to adult daycare so catholic charities focuses its attention on pulling that group housing group together and doing advocacy group does that help. >> it helps the rent is the biggest delta but the out liar of the group in terms of cost per clients served with only 23 people served in a nearly one thousand dollars budget. >> i think one of the other things we've been asked years ago to put in other funding to provide the services so when you look at the dos portion not the full cost of the service you can't figure out what it costs to run the program unless all
1:57 pm
the agencies are involved we put in at the bottom the other money we put in. >> it is quite helpful. >> you can't tell. >> the other budget patties budget includes that grant one of the issues with the bringing clients into the program as well as the amount of outreach for getting families and participants comfortable with the program and reaching them at all there is a big portion of time that goes into outreach to clients i can tell your face. >> i'm bothered by on enormous range i understand 10 or 15 period of time will dpaevenl but. >> i think one thing if we look at the catalyst charities awards 4 thousands of the one
1:58 pm
and 60 the adult daycare collaborative and grants that brings it towards the area of self-help and i o a. >> maybe my math is wrong. >> commissioner sims math. >> yeah. i have a followup question you know, i know that the catholic group they put in the actual funds and clients etc. how come the other program didn't put if like self-help >> no. >> i'm pretty sure they're raising the funds. >> they are yes they are i think that each agency writes it's own budget the way it make sense to them and it is not always offsets and the leveraging of the funds are
1:59 pm
not included. >> my understanding not required that they put in they're other the question they put in their fundraising not required. >> just on and on disposal the self-help budget looks like it is more than $4,200 per client whereas co-monarch they're in the 14 to 15 hundred there's per clients it is hard from a fiduciary point of view how we're arriving at good policy for those budgets. >> good morning, commissioners john with the agency contract we're looking with this set of contracts we noted a difference in terms of the rates so what we'll do going forward we'll
2:00 pm
trying to be able to explain the differences and that there are is more justification from the feedback today it is required that agencies puts in matching funds we can build that into the budget when we are looking at similar services to compare the costs so if there are in kind contributions we'll exclude that to it will show when we are approving a certain rates or recommending a rate for the services that we can compare them to each other something we'll work on in our future documents and packets. >> it will be great navigate if catalyst charities for example, is carrying an umbrella services some shared services so for all the programs it almost
2:01 pm
feels there a separate award it might be cleaner if catholic charities is supporting all the podiums a issued as an award and a separate award for the program specific to their agency. >> that's the things about that yesterday there's you- i wouldn't want to flood you with numerous packet what might be good a component an analysis in the memo that kind of explains for the food or a particular component this is how we're looking at the cost and rates and separate out the additional pieces in the overall costs. >> if i just you know look at it is going to cost one - dos $3,200 per client under one agency purview and 1400s per client under other agencies purview an unfair analysis
2:02 pm
probably but it is data that i think from a fiduciary point of view and oversight i need to look at. >> so i think some of the discrepancy the low volume of clients for the elderly so serving maybe a basic infrastructure that is allocated out since you have a low population this helps the costs per individual will be higher with fixed expenses that are allocated it is possible they'll increase the number of people they're serving without the fixed costs spread out over a large population with the costs to the individual is lower. >> i don't want to be disagreeable but we have two other agencies demonstrating 14 to fooerng hundred dollars the
2:03 pm
delta is too big. >> what we'll do i'll suggest to any staff where it is appropriate to put in a section that analyze and separate out the components that make sense for those services this is what we're paying per unit and other components that stand alone. >> sorry to make work. >> any other questions or comments questions for hearing none >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? thank you that motion carries. >> item h requesting authorization to enter into a new grant with the institute on aging to provide adult daycare services a.d. crook for july 2, 0160, through june 2019 in the amount of 4 hundred plus a 10 percent

2:09 pm
day for the japanese-american when the prime minister came to visit at the kamoche home asked the question on longevity of life what's the square feet he she said i don't worry about it basically kamoche is a residential home but cost was a big factor we tried to encourage the people to come to the communities and participate in the program but let the figure be a challenge the administrator is hard to run the programs in the red but sometimes your programs speak to the need of community and your seniors you operate on that premise when you try to do do fundraiser we granted those rates to be more compatible and still try to educate our community on what it costs for the social daycare i remember the day's we worked together with the colleagues with social daycare when it was
