As we enter Year Two post-disaster, Rebuild NorthBay is ramping up our activities. We are pleased to announce our new dedicated office space at 595 5th St. West in Sonoma. From our inception in October 2017, we have dedicated ourselves to the long-term recovery, resiliency and reimagining of the North Bay. We remain committed to this vision.
As of November 8th, construction on the new Hopper Ave Wall is officially underway! This new wall is chosen by the neighborhood, for the people, and at no cost to them. We are making our way through this journey together -- until the last family is home.

The below relates to fire survivors who are families with children.
If you and your child were affected by the wildfires in Northern California, we want to know about your experience. Stanford University and Aurora Santa Rosa Hospital researchers are meeting with families to hear their stories and learn more about how we can help.
How does this work?
We will be inviting one parent or guardian and one child per family to participate in the project.
Each person will receive a $25 gift card for their time.
Each person will be interviewed by a trained researcher for approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours.
If you are interested in participating in the study, contact:
Cynthia Kane Hyman CNS RN Director of Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement
Aurora Santa Rosa Hospital
For questions regarding your legal rights as a participant, contact:
In my opinion, if you would normally be interested in participating but cannot due to post-fire related time constraints, emotional state (of you or your child), or some other reason, I might tell that to the researchers--not knowing why people do not want to participate can be just as valuable. ...

ICYMI: Come join us on February 23rd on the RiseUp Project: a mile of common fencing for Larkfield and Mark West Estates. This is a true community "fence raising" in support of hundreds of families who lost everything in the fires.
Over the past year we have worked diligently with the neighborhood leadership Michael Holdner and Brad Sherwood, Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County, Friedman's Home Improvement, and Supervisor James Gore to secure nearly $500,000 in funding from 21 amazing donors to make this demonstration of #SonomaStrong a tangible deliverable for fire affected communities.
We will be filming this day for a short with Dogfilm. We'd love to have your hands, heart, and community spirit here with us as we bring this project home!

Larkfield Estates and Mark West Estates approached Rebuild Northbay Foundation requesting assistance for approximately one mile of common perimeter fencing.
Both neighborhoods were decimated in the fires and neither neighborhood has the means to replace the fence. This is an unmet need.
