Yet there is still more work to be done! Connect with us and our partners throughout San Mateo County to help build healthy, equitable communities.
A key priority of Get Healthy San Mateo County (GHSMC) is a Healthy Economy. A strong local economy builds household financial security for all and promotes everyone’s health. An important aspect of financial security is wages—how much money a person or a family makes at their job(s). For most people, but particularly for low-income people, wages are the only source of income to rely for daily and monthly expenses with a limited cushion of savings and additional wealth to draw from. This makes even small changes in wages critical to a family’s financial security.
