As we hope you are aware, the chapter provides a variety of services to the HD community of Northern California. Those services include 10 support groups, a visiting nurse program and, perhaps most importantly, the services of a full time social worker.


For a family in crisis or in need of navigating the complex web of social services available to HD families, a good social worker can be a real life line. We have one of the best in the business in the person of Lisa Kjer, licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), who I hope will be with us for many years to come. And whom you are welcome to contact at
