The Jack's Helping Hand Assistance Program provides a range of services, therapies, programs, medical products and equipment, transportation, food and lodging costs to children with special needs in San Luis Obispo County. These services are provided to children and their families who cannot otherwise afford them, who are underinsured and/or who have exhausted other community resources. Our programs include adaptive water therapy, a therapeutic equine program, adaptive toy lending libraries, family support groups and the heart and soul of our mission, the Assistance program assisting medically fragile children under the age of 21. Jack's Assistance Program has already assisted over 600 family members just in 2018. Our Assistance expense is $177,000 for facilitating families who have specific medical needs and $67,000 for our programs and therapies. We would appreciate consideration of continued funding via the 2019 Grants-in-Aid. Thank you for supporting our mission of meeting unmet needs here in San Luis Obispo.

Senior Nutrition Program/Meals That Connect serves meals to around 200 clients in the city of SLO. About 40% of these clients enjoy congregate dining at the Anderson Hotel, a low-income hotel, and at the United Church of Christ Congregational. The other 60% of these clients receive home-delivered meals, and most of them are living near or below the poverty level. For these home-delivery clients, the daily visits of our volunteers provide a safety check, a human contact, and a sense of security, in addition to nutrition. It also allows them to continue living independently in their homes even after they are homebound instead of becoming homeless or a burden on public nursing facilities. Our program directly meets two of your funding priorities-- hunger and malnutrition prevention, and services for seniors and/or people with disabilities in need—and indirectly meets your primary priority, homelessness prevention. I sincerely encourage you to continue your support for Meals That Connect.

Which statement best describes you? Click all that apply.
I live in the City of San Luis Obispo.


What do you love about the City of SLO parks, activities, and recreational facilities?
The ratio of open space to development is my favorite aspect of the city of San Luis Obispo. Having lots of open space with trails and many small parks and paths is really important to me.


What do you wish to have in 20 years for the City of SLO parks, activities and recreational facilities?
I hope the city does not choose to build in the open space we use today. I have visited areas north and south of us and the open spaces there are incredibly impacted on weekend. I think that maintaining our current ratio of open space to development is critical. As we inevitably grow as a city we need to continue to add parks and open space and trails.

What do you love about the City of SLO parks, activities, and recreational facilities?
The number of local pocket parks and the activities that occur in these parks even though in small spaces. I love the designated open space that means that our city doesn't become overdeveloped and allows the wildlife to migrate. I love that some of the parks are designed for young children.


What do you wish to have in 20 years for the City of SLO parks, activities and recreational facilities?
More dog parks within the city limits. El Chorro is too far for those who live on the other side of the city. Laguna Lake's dog park is unusable because of the mud, no fencing, and the lack of proper equipment such as tables etc. A proper dog park should be fenced and be at least 1/4 of an acre of level land. There should be two sections, one for small dogs and one for large dogs. Given that so much of the current new developments don't have large enough backyards, we need more dog parks for people who will be living in these new developments.

What do you love about the City of SLO parks, activities, and recreational facilities?
Sinsheimer park is our favorite -- kids love the sliding hill


What do you wish to have in 20 years for the City of SLO parks, activities and recreational facilities?
Serra Meadows / Toscano needs a good park for children (with swings and play structures) in walking distance -- hopefully much sooner than 20 years from now.

New play equipment in the parks for kids -- many areas have rusty, dilapidated play structures that don't seem to be well maintained.

What do you love about the City of SLO parks, activities, and recreational facilities?
I appreciate that they are spread throughout the area; it's not like we have just one big park


What do you wish to have in 20 years for the City of SLO parks, activities and recreational facilities?
If we continue to grow in population (likely), I'd like to see more of the same style of small/medium sized parks throughout the area

What do you love about the City of SLO parks, activities, and recreational facilities?
It's great that we have so many opportunities for walking and hiking.
We have an open city government that encourages feedback like this.


What do you wish to have in 20 years for the City of SLO parks, activities and recreational facilities?
I was an avid bicyclist before moving here, but I rarely do so now. This is for two primary reasons: (1) Streets here are too dangerous. This has been a surprise, since my previous neighborhood in rural N.J. had a complex interconnected web of safe streets and bike paths, and I was able to find a safe round trip route of 35 miles starting from home, that didn't require putting the bike in a car. (2) Existing bike paths don't come close enough to my neighborhood (LOVR and Diablo) so to access them it's necessary to put the bike in a car and drive. Usually I will drive to the Bob Jones trail and bike in that area, but the overhead of loading, unloading, and driving means I don't do it often. Plus, that's obviously a waste of fuel and carbon-emitting.

So, my request is to create a network of bike paths that increase walkable or bike-rideable access to more residents outside of the city core. It should be possible to access a bike trail without having to negotiate busy and dangerous streets like LOVR or Madonna.

I love the Laguna lake park (right by my house) and the abundance of open space!

Keep our open space open, add more open space, maintain and improve trails, add new trails, add a program to certify off-leash dogs.
