SCAYD was founded in 1982 by a group of community-dedicated citizens who wanted to ensure that support services for children, teens, and families would be accessible and available in Sonoma county. Built upon strong partnerships with city governments, the Cotati-Rohnert Park Unified School District and the Sonoma County Health and Human Services Departments, SCAYD is the Family Resource Center of Cotati-Rohnert Park and surrounding communities; our primary service area extends from Santa Rosa south to Penngrove and east and west of the Highway 101 corridor. SCAYD has long been a guiding light and active force within the community for the development of healthy youth and assistance for all individuals and families in need of a helping hand.
Our mission is to help all people in need within the community reach their greatest potential for self-sufficiency and well-being.
SCAYD is in alignment with Sonoma County Upstream Investments and offers support services to families who are struggling with any of numerous socio-economic and/or mental health problems. Services include Counseling, Family Advocacy, Substance Abuse Prevention Services, Parent Education, Anger Management, Latino Outreach Services, Youth Education and Employment Services, Emergency Rental Assistance, as well as other support services.
We value our connection to the community we service and we are one of the primary hubs of the interdependent continuum of services in Sonoma County. All individuals and families are able to access and connect with resources and opportunities that promote healthy, sustainable lives and build a strong, thriving community.
