Our Chapter in Action

Great attendance and interest at the chapter's February meeting focusing on the PDPM with Julie Rettberg, VP of  Clinical Resources with ONR.

Here's two of our CAHF crew (from the Redwood Empire and Golden Gate chapters, plus CAHF staff from Sacramento) taking in a ballgame at AT&T Park Friday, July 13. Giants beat the A's, but a good time was had by all. 

Special thanks to our generous sponsors: U.S. Foods, Singlepoint Insurance Services, LTC Consulting, PharMerica, Affirma Rehabilitation, Suncrest Hospice, Hanson Bridgett, Integro, Burger Rehabilitation, Prevent - A Fire & Safety Consulting Firmand Royal Ambulance.        


We had a great time at this year's RAP session with CDPH on May 24. Pictured here: Redwood Empire CAHF chapter officers Cheryl Cole, Treasurer; Michael Raffee, Education & Associate Chair and Georgia Otterson, President; Dana Forney, CDPH District Manager 1 and staff. 

On December 7, Redwood Empire CAHF Chapter Treasurer Cheryl Cole presented a check for $2,000 on behalf of its members to Sean Anderson, Manager of the Windsor Redwood Credit Union.

The Redwood Credit Union will ensure 100% of this donation find its way to victims of the destructive October firestorms in Sonoma, Lake, Napa, and Mendocino Counties.

It was a very moving time for the chapter and the community at large, but also an opportunity to express hope in future rebuilding efforts in the region.
