Community Message 3/23/2020
By Tom Bieri, Executive Director
On Friday, March 20, 2020 an exceptional staff person at a Community Support Network (CSN) home in Cotati died while working with a resident. Our hearts and prayers go out to our staff member’s family, the community, and all of our staff and residents during this difficult time.
This is a tragedy for our organization, the community and the neighborhoods. We are working with the police on this investigation and therefore we cannot provide any specifics or details.
Please respect the privacy of all CSN residents both at their homes and if you encounter them in the community.
