Neighborhood Services 

What is Neighborhood Services?

Neighborhood Services provides innovative youth development programming that serves at-risk, low-income and homeless youth and families throughout Santa Rosa. The programs provide "safe haven" sites where young people can enjoy recreational, social and athletic activities without fear of gangs, drugs and other negative influences that occur in their neighborhoods. In partnership with other community agencies, Neighborhood Services also assists families living in high-need neighborhoods improve their quality of life by connecting them to other beneficial programs and services, helping to build a stronger community.
