SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Live Well San Diego is getting some new wheels.
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to purchase a vehicle that will take the services of the public wellness, safety and quality-of-life program directly to residents.
The Live Well ``mobile office'' will offer disaster aid; community health services; housing assistance; and outreach to seniors, veterans and the homeless, according to planners.
Supervisor Greg Cox called the rolling service a continuation of Live Well efforts that will allow the county to reach out to citizens more efficiently.
The vehicle will make regular stops countywide, Health & Human Services Agency Director Nick Machionne told the board.
``We don't anticipate any issues,'' Machionne said. ``The mobility will only improve our access.''
The goal is to have the vehicle on the road this year, HHSA spokeswoman Sarah Sweeney said.
The program will cost $600,000, which will come out of the fiscal 2019-20 budget. The funding sources are CalWORKs and CalFresh, according to the county.
