COVID – 19 Update
Disability Services & Legal Center prioritizes the health of its employees and consumers above all. Due to the nature of our work a lot of the people that come through our doors have compromised immune systems. To keep our staff and consumers safe we have made the decision to close our doors to the public. All staff and services will still be available through phone or email. If you have any general questions please call us.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our decision.

FEMA Relief Information Per Press Democrat
All residents affected by the wildfires currently burning in Sonoma and Napa counties can now apply for disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Applicants may receive grants for certain necessary expenses that are not covered by insurance.
The assistance can help cover basic repairs to a home to make it safe, sanitary and livable. The aid may also be used for rent, medical expenses or other serious needs related to the fires.
Applicants can register by phone at 1-800-621-3362 or online at www.disasterassistance.gov.
In addition, FEMA has set up a mobile registration center at the Sonoma County Office of Education located at 5340 Skylane Blvd in Santa Rosa. The center is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, until further notice.
