Our Association is a support group for ostomates and their families. We work toward their rehabilitation through moral support, mutual aid, and education.
We hold our meetings at the Red Cross Building, 5297 Aero Drive in northern Santa Rosa (map). They start at 2 p.m., September through June, on the second Sunday of the month unless it falls on a holiday. We announce our speakers and agendas in our newsletter. We also furnish refreshments at our meetings.
We provide free visiting services (including phone visits) for both pre- and post-operative ostomates and their families throughout the year.
Our tax deductible annual membership dues of $12.00 include a subscription to our newsletter, OSTONOMA NEWS, monthly meetings with educational agendas, access to our free appliance inventory, a library of informative publications, and an information table with handouts and samples.
Please feel free to contact us for more information.
