- Senior Services
West County Community Services (WCCS) is a multi-service human services agency serving western Sonoma County. Our service region includes Sebastopol and the small rural communities around the Russian River, from Forestville west to Jenner. Our goal is to empower our community one person at a time.
WCCS’s employment training focuses on individuals with disabilities, and low-income youth and adults.
Our Russian River Senior Resource Center in Guerneville is a hub for activities, emotional, and food support for our local elderly community.
WCCS provides permanent supportive housing, outreach, and shelter for our local homeless population. We also manage a Rapid Rehousing Program for those who have recently lost their homes or are at imminent risk of homelessness. Until December 30, 2021, WCCS is managing an Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). ERAP supports tenants and landlords who are struggling with rent and utilities due to COVID-19.
Finally, WCCS provides counseling and behavioral health to hundreds of local community members. We provide emotional support to children, adults, and seniors through both professional therapists, senior peer counselors, and four peer-based mental health support centers.
