Homeless Prevention for the homeless in northern Sonoma County. General assistance grants to families and individuals experiencing an episodic gap in money to cover bills
Sometimes, there is a very fine line between being safely housed and being homeless.
For clients experiencing an episodic gap in money to cover bills, Reach for Home provides general assistance grants to families and individuals who live in the Sonoma County towns of Healdsburg, Cloverdale, Windsor, and Geyserville. In 2017, over $50,000 in homeless prevention funds were distributed through Reach for Home and the S. F. Chronicle Season of Sharing Fund.
