This fall it was fires, last winter it was floods. Each year we seem tested and, as a community, every year we respond for each other. With your support, West County Community Services (WCCS) continues to grow and focus its efforts to empower our youth in search of job employment, our seniors seeking health and companionship and many of our most vulnerable seeking shelter, food and counseling. In the past year, WCCS has opened a new housing project for homeless families in Sebastopol, raised the funds for a new commercial kitchen and intergenerational culinary program at the Russian River Senior Center (opening summer 2018!) and continues to grow our employment, youth and behavioral health support for our West County Community.
This October’s fires have affected us all. Many of our employees were displaced by this unprecedented tragedy, as were so many across Sonoma County. WCCS has now partnered with Santa Rosa-based agencies to provide services to relocating families from Santa Rosa, whether temporarily or permanently, to West County. We thank our community partners for joining us in this effort. And thank you for being our partner today and tomorrow.
