Kaiser Permanente Thrive logo

River to Coast Children’s Services would like to thank Kaiser Permanente for the 2018 Community Benefit Grant in the amount of $20,000.00   This is the second year that we have received this grant and we are very fortunate.

Because of the generous donation from Kaiser Permanente, River to Coast Children’s Services kindergyms will continue to be an important west Sonoma County resource for children ages 0 to 6 years and their parents/guardians. During the period July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018, 270 children and 203 adults participated in kindergym sessions in Guerneville and Forestville. Families accessed our food bank/emergency resources, signed up for holiday gift programs, health and safety programs, and received referrals for other needs through kindergym. It is great place for parents to network and get vital support.

Kaiser Permanente's  continued support of our Agency helps us to fulfill our mission to serve children and families in west Sonoma County, strengthening families’ emotional and physical well-being in our community.
