Five years ago, the decision to merge four local core service organizations – Project MANA, North Tahoe Family Resource Center, Family Resource Center of Truckee, and Tahoe Safe Alliance – was unprecedented and initially met with skepticism. This strategic merger aimed to streamline and enhance service delivery by addressing overlapping services in the community, ultimately resulting in the Sierra Community House (SCH). 

It proved to be a successful endeavor, eliminating confusion, inefficiencies, and retraumatization that individuals faced while navigating multiple services before the merger. By consolidating resources under one roof, SCH made essential services easily accessible in a single location.
