Sebastopol Unhoused (video)
A compelling documentary on homelessness in our town
The following video was shared by Diana Rich in the email copied below. It was originally shown at the recent Sebastopol Town Hall, which Laura reported on here. The video deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. The short documentary tells the individual stories of seven people whom we group as homeless in Sebastopol. It also presents the people who work to care for them.

This email is going out to those who have expressed an interest in seeing the final video on the status of Sebastopol’s services for the unhoused. The video was produced as part of the June 30, 2022 Town Hall hosted by Sebastopol’s Ad Hoc Committee on the Unhoused. It is available on the City’s Town Hall webpage, reachable by clicking HERE.
The Town Hall webpage also has a link to the full recording of the Town Hall, which in addition to the video includes presentations from Dannielle Danforth of West County Community Services (operating Park Village and supervising Sebastopol’s Homeless Outreach Worker), Michelle Patino of Disaster Emergency Medical Assistance (operating Elderberry Commons), and Adrienne Lauby of Sonoma Applied Village Services (operating Horizon Shine). Opening and closing comments by Councilmembers Una Glass and Diana Rich are also part of the Town Hall recording.
Feedback of any kind on the Town Hall and/or the video is invited and would be appreciated.
