Each organization can send one attendee, and individuals will be invited to attend on a first come first serve basis. There will also be a waitlist option for one additional person.   


If there is more than one person from your organization that would like to attend, we highly encourage that person to sign up for the waitlist, as we were able to accommodate people on the waitlist for our last site visit. Please note that there is no guarantee that people on the waitlist will be able to attend, but we will let you know if your status changes by end of day, Friday 9/29. 


Attendees can expect to learn about Santa Rosa Community Health’s (SRCH) New Beginnings Programs and the efforts they have made to expand trauma-informed care and resilience-based strategies to care for perinatal patients and their families impacted by substance use disorders, mental health challenges and homelessness.
