Resource Mapping Project
This project brings together direct service providers to meet each other, learn about each other’s services, needs, gaps, and available resources to share in order to create greater synergies and efficiency. This project will help providers learn more about each other and improve their working relationships in order to share knowledge and resources. It will also yield great information from which a visual map and resource directory listing information can be shared with law enforcement, healthcare service providers, funders and more.
Supporting Our Hospital
We are pleased to announce that we finished the $6 million fundraising campaign for technology upgrades to the Healdsburg District Hospital and now are supporting the purchase and installment of the new MRI to serve our community. Thank you to the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation for the $3 million dollar match to make this possible.
