During the quickly evolving COVID-19 situation, we are monitoring training plans day-by-day. We will be deciding on how to proceed with currently planned training events based on the official guidance of public organizations, size and scale of events, location, and the decisions of our hosting agencies. The health and well-being of our staff, trainers and participants is of upmost importance.
Participants should make their own decisions regarding traveling to and attending group events, in conjunction with their health care provider and employer. We understand that, given the situation, registered participants may decide to not attend events.
As soon as a decision is made to cancel or postpone an event that you are registered for, you will be notified by our staff.
CIR Board Members, staff, family and friends joined the Petaluma community in celebrating an evening of fun at Lagunitas for our first fundraiser. Colleagues and acquaintances came together for a night of shared interest promoting CIR’s mission to support California communities to advance best practices in prevention, intervention, and treatment. Donations from local organizations including Harvest Moon Winery, D’Argenzio Winery, Wicked Slush, Sauced, Acre Coffee, and Lagunitas made possible a successful giveaway. Guests spent the night discussing CIR’s impact, reminiscing recent accomplishments like the Underserved Populations Training Project and eagerly anticipating the start of new projects like the Serving California's Diversity Training Project. We look forward to celebrating CIR’s work of inspiring and equipping professionals to build resilient families and strong communities with you next year!

Serving California’s Diversity Training Project: Call for Presenters
The Center for Innovation and Resources, Inc. (CIR), has received funding through the Victim Service Training Program of the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES). The Serving California’s Diversity Training Project (DIVERSITY) will focus on responding to the needs of three distinct populations in the state: immigrant populations, people of color (POC), and victims with limited English proficiency (LEP). An overarching theme will be implicit bias; how it creates barriers to serving victims of crime and how to overcome those barriers. The project will provide training and technical assistance to victim service providers in order to increase their ability to effectively serve the three aforementioned populations. CIR is seeking a group of dynamic and diverse experts to work as independent contractors and serve as instructors and consultants to constituents. We will be conducting introductory and advanced in-person trainings as well as webinars.
