Hello, are these meetings public? How do we find out when and where the meetings are held? 

Hi Sara! YES these are public meetings and we are always happy when new people attend! We meet the 4th Wed of each month at Child Parent Institute located at 3650 Standish Ave, Santa Rosa, CA 95407. Our next meeting is on July 24, 2019 starting at 3:30. Please join us! Bring a friend and spread the word!

We are early in the process of trying to figure out what we might want to accomplish in the next year or so. 

When you're on the Sonoma County ACEs Connection homepage - on the right side there is a resource directory - and there are Monthly Meeting Notes available - in addition to many other materials.
Looking forward to meeting you! @Sara Champie
