Where People Come Together to Solve Problems
Chris Stewart unveils the first Tehama Together Banner.
The first meeting of Tehama Together was held on January 19, 2009, the National Day of Community Service, and was attended by approximately 25 people who formed the nucleus of what is now Tehama Together. Those early participants decided to develop a collaborative umbrella for dealing with unmet needs in Tehama County.
Initial organizers, Noel Bookout, Orle Jackson, Chris Stewart, Sr. Pat Manoli, Don Gerber and Kathy Moore
Subsequently the group met and was offered a home at Pine Street Plaza at 332 Pine Street, Red Bluff. On November 9, 2009, approximately 100 community members gathered for the grand opening of the Tehama Together Headquarters.
For the past nine years Tehama Together has been recognized as a major program in Tehama County.
Subsequently, the Board met monthly and obtained its 501 C3 status on January 28, 2010. From the initial beginning, it has grown to include three major programs and five sponsored projects.
