Since the pandemic began, mental health has become the defining health crisis of our time. The bulk of this emergency has fallen on those least prepared to handle its devastating effects: children and youth.
It’s urgent that young people have access to the mental and emotional support they need. However, the ongoing crisis has placed great strain on local resources.
Thanks to past financial support from our donor community, SVEF was able to immediately respond to the crisis by partnering with our schools and trusted local organizations and experts to help students most in need of support. We remain steadfast in our efforts and are investing in new programs that directly address the pressing mental health needs of local students.
This holiday season, we ask our generous donors to make a special year-end gift (which will be doubled by matching funds) to continue this work.
Every student is experiencing the mental health crisis differently, which means we need a robust continuum of care in Sonoma Valley. Your generosity will allow us to expand and launch comprehensive mental health resources to ensure students get the support they need, including:
Your gift will make an immediate impact ensuring that tried-and-true mental and social-emotional wellness programs are available to our students now–when they need them the most.
Thank you for helping to ensure that Sonoma Valley students have the healing and support they need and deserve.
