On behalf of SVABO we’d like to thank you all for your continued support of our organization in these uncertain times. One thing that is certain is the dedication and commitment the volunteer leadership and staff have to continue to serve our members. SVABO is open for business but our staff is working remotely in compliance with Governor Newsom’s orders. Although we hope not, members may experience a slower response over the next few weeks.  For optimum service and to increase clarity for our staff, an email in place of a call is better. You can best reach us at

Thank you for your support! Stay safe and healthy.
