California HOPE Interviews/Entrevistas 23 de Agosto
California HOPE is currently working with an agency called Internews to conduct several listening circles and engagement events to hear from the Latinx and Spanish-speaking community about their opinions, concerns and needs surrounding information related to the fire recovery process and all the issues impacted by it. 

Internews is committed to support the most information vulnerable people all around the world and they are currently working on a measure to help communities in Napa, Sonoma and Santa Rosa with the recent fire recovery. With the devastation from the 2017 wildfires in Northern California, many residents were left greatly affected, including the Latino community whose devastation was heightened due to the lack of information available in Spanish.

We will be hosting a listening circle in Spanish on August 23 from 6-8 p.m. at La Luz Center--17560 Greger St, Sonoma, CA 95476 and we encourge people to reserve their spot and attend as a way to share their experiences that they went through during the fires. I have attached the flyer in hopes that you may be able to help us distribute and share.

Train as a Coach to Help Older Adults Prevent Falls August 27th
Train as a Coach to Help Older Adults Prevent Falls

Help older adult increase their safety, balance, strength and confidence on their feet by training on August 27 as a volunteer coach with the nationally acclaimed program, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns about Falls. Falls are the #1 reason that older Sonoma County adults have to visit an emergency room. Falls can result in a hip fracture, a sprained wrist or a head injury. These injuries may mean a long recovery and can lower older adults’ quality of life or keep them from living independently in their own homes.

A one-day training to become a certified A Matter of Balance coach will be offered Monday, August 27, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Human Services Department Adult and Aging Division, 3725 Westwind Blvd., Santa Rosa. Reserve your space by email at or call (707) 565-5936. The training is hosted by Sonoma County Human Services Department Area Agency on Aging and RSVP Sonoma through North Coast Opportunities, Inc. Volunteer Network. For more information about the program, visit the A Matter of Balance website.
