100 Mile

RRV, Sweetwater and Dry Creek Valley

Follow the historic Old Redwood Hwy on mostly level ground from Santa Rosa, through Windsor to the quaint town square of Healdsburg, then head up the east side of Dry Creek Valley and back again on the west. Now follow Westside Road with sweeping views toward Mt. St. Helena rising above a valley floor carpeted with vineyards. Just before reaching the iconic Hop Kiln Winery you’ll turn right on Sweetwater Road and enter a little known enchanted realm, passing a lolling cow or two, then through redwoods, climbing some steep grades and hillside apple orchards that time has forgot, before descending past an abandoned mine to meet Armstrong Woods Road. From there you head in to Guerneville, cross the Russian River and head south through the redwoods, vineyards and apples on Gravenstein Hwy. You’ll turn right and down into the Green Valley and Atascadero Creek, rise up through rolling hills and winding roads out to the one-time rail terminal of Occidental. From there you’ll make a loop out to Valley Ford, where the trees give way to coastal grasslands and back. Now you’ll return to Santa Rosa, via Sebastopol and trails along Santa Rosa Creek. Starts and ends at the site of the Living Room.

Programs that Benefit

The Living Room

For 20 years, The Living Room has been the only center in in Sonoma County that specifically serves homeless and at-risk women and their children, providing participants with a place to be during the day when overnight shelters are closed, as well as hot meals, a computer center, daily necessities such as toothbrushes and shampoo and community referrals and on-site counselors. The Mother and Child program provides a safe place for Moms to bring their children and to receive training on parenting. It is a critical place for women who are on the verge of becoming homeless, as well as the first place that many newly homeless turn to for relief and referral guidance.
A majority of the women have suffered from exposure to domestic violence and have experienced either physical or sexual assault. The Living Room provides a supportive place to heal.

More than 900 individual participants are served annually. An average of 70-80 participants receive services every day Monday-Friday. This includes approximately 20-30 children and their mothers who attend the Mother and Child Program. A nourishing breakfast and a hot lunch is prepared and served by our volunteers – about 2,000 meals are served per month.

Check out their website for more information: www.thelivingroomsc.org

Sunday Open Table

Sunday Open Table provides a safe respite from the elements, a full breakfast, bag lunches with vitamin packets, and companionship to approximately one hundred homeless men and women every Sunday morning, in Downtown Santa Rosa. Additionally, clothes are made available to those who need them.

You can find more information on their website: www.incarnationsantarosa.org/open-table.

St. Andrew’s Food Kitchen

Since 2003, the St. Andrew’s Food Pantry has provided bags of groceries including fresh fruit and vegetables to families in need every Tuesday. In 2013, the pantry distributed 5,953 bags of groceries and many tons of fresh fruit and vegetables, serving an average of 117 households. In addition, the Pantry offers free hot dinners twice a month, and served 2,738 individual meals in 2013.
