Every other Thursday at 9 AM

Rural Resilience - A KZYX inquiry regarding at-risk children in Mendocino County

(Airing alternate Thursdays from 9:00AM to 10:00AM.)

Hosted by: Alyson Bailey

Rural Resilience is a different kind of local series for KZYX, delving deeply into a single subject from many different angles. KZYX in concert with local advocates is using the power of radio for good by highlighting the need, and existence of childhood supports in Mendocino County. Throughout the series, you can expect to hear about foster care, health, disability, and other factors that children and families face daily in Mendocino County.

Alyson Bailey has been devoted to community service and social work since 1998. She moved to the Mendocino coast in 2006, becoming involved in aging and mental health advocacy and housing in 2014. She is a certified Mental Health Rehabilitation Specialist, Residential Facility for the Elderly Administrator, Adult Residential Facility Administrator, LGBT Aging Educator, and Founder of EDIFY Family Advocacy. Alyson currently shares a home in Willits with her husband, child, and beloved cats.

My guest on the next show, Gary Lewis, works in Alternative Education in Fort Bragg and currently teaches grades 6 through 8.  He is particularly interested in social-emotional development and how childhood trauma impacts the ability of youth to access education.  Prior to working in Alternative Education, Gary spent a year as an aide in a Special Education class.
