Dear Sonoma County Community Members,

This email serves as notification of County of Sonoma Winter shelters and resources, the attached flyer has information on Sonoma County’s system of care partners with local service providers that will offer winter shelter bed space or other sleeping alternatives. This is in addition to year-round shelters.

This information is also being processed for posting on our website.

Please share widely with your connections.

Surrounded by nature, on the edge of a forest, with real grass in its field, Monte Rio Union School is a beautiful gem in the west county.  We are an inclusive K-8 school, for anyone in the Guerneville - Monte Rio - Cazadero area!  Monte Rio School is small, providing lots of time for one on one time for students with their teachers.  We have a brilliant garden, providing delicious and nutritious food for all grades.  And lastly, we are very community involved, with fundraisers, shows, and occasional plays.
