Services Advisory Team
Healdsburg Community Services (HCS) know there are uncertain times ahead. Help them learn what services the community needs during COVID-19 to support you, your family, and your friends by volunteering for our community-based Services Advisory Team.
The goal of the Services Advisory Team (SAT) is to get direct feedback from a cross-section of the community on what their needs might be this summer, into the upcoming school year, and beyond. We want to get input from parents, teens, single folks, our Latino community, older adults, and others. HCS will take this feedback – along with feedback from the City's Parks and Recreation Commission and direction from City Council - to help prioritize their services during a time of limited financial resources.
They envision the team meeting virtually either weekly or bi-weekly at a day and time that is yet to be determined. Meetings will last about an hour.
For questions or if you can volunteer your time and energy to be part of the Services Advisory Team please contact Recreation Manager Dave Jahns at email@example.com or 707-431-3152.
