SAY’s winter shelter for youth open

February 14, 2020

Every winter the SAY adds additional spaces to shelter youth from life-threatening weather conditions. Any youth interested in utilizing winter shelter can call the 24/7 crisis line at 1-888-729-0012 to go to SAY’s teen shelter located at 1243 Ripley St. in Santa Rosa for more information.

SAY is offering free drop-in wellness groups for youth at three Sonoma County Library branches: Rincon Valley Regional Library, Sonoma County History & Genealogy Library and Sebastopol Regional Library.  Open to youth ages 12-1, these groups will be focused on supporting mental wellness and healthy ways to cope with challenges.

January was National slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention month in an effort to bring attention to the epidemic of human trafficking in this country. SAY is a founding member of the Sonoma County Human Trafficking Task Force and helps victims of human trafficking escape a life of abuse through the housing and counseling services.

SAY will be welcoming SAY’s new CEO- Anita Maldonado and will officially start March 1.

March tour of the SAY Finley Dream Center

The next available tour of the Dream Center is scheduled for Wed., March 25 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. 

One of the greatest needs is homemade meals for youth staying in the shelter. There are still several spots available for the SAY Meal Train-this is a great group or family volunteer project.
