I found out what the cute blue building in Pt. Arena is. From another angle, further up the street, I could see that it says, “The Center.” It’s the Action Network: “Creating community wellness and strengthening families.” I had occasion to contact someone there, to provide resources to a family in trouble, not knowing that the Bilingual Family Wellness Specialist I contacted was located in the cute little blue building.
Nestled at the “center” of Main Street, Action Network is “dedicated to serving local communities on the Redwood Coast of Northern California spanning Sonoma and Mendocino Counties from Fort Ross to Elk.” Their programs “help meet the growing needs of individuals and families of all ages and backgrounds.” They practice “the whole community wellness approach to support thriving, resilient and connected communities throughout the region.” I like that.
They have family therapists, legal services advocates, and community LGBTQIA+ support groups. They help families out with food, diapers, etc… They have Teen Empowerment & Life Skills activities, child development resources, and address domestic violence and mental health. They even have a community garden behind The Center.
Next step, I’ll have to go visit the place!
