Historically, the services provided by the County of Sonoma have been disparate and siloed. In April 2017, the Board of Supervisors prioritized strengthening the County’s Safety Net System, which identifies the most vulnerable residents and develops coordinated strategies to improve their well-being, self-sufficiency, and recovery.
Under the ACCESS initiative, Sonoma County’s Safety Net departments, including Department of Health Services, Human Services Department, Community Development Commission, Child Support, Public Defender, District Attorney, Probation, Sheriff’s Office, and community-based organizations, are actively working to integrate services to ensure that community members of Sonoma County receive coordinated care, no matter how the individual enters the Safety Net System. A common goal is to reduce homelessness through this collaborative system of care.
