Safe Sonoma County

Please note that SafeSonomaCounty, an innovative resource and referral website project being built by the Commission – put on hold in the aftermath of the fires – is back on track!

More than ever, we are reminded of the spirit behind the Public Service Announcement filmed last year by members of our diverse community. Stay tuned for updates during the summer of 2018!
