Frequently Asked Questions
for the Environmental Health Network
Q: What is EHN?
A: We are a registered nonprofit (501(c)(3)) located in the San Francisco Bay Area providing support, advocacy & information for the chemically and electrically injured and hypersensitive. We incorporated as a nonprofit in 1988.
Q: How do I join EHN?
A: All members (paying or not, signed up or not) can participate in our mailing lists, come to our meetings, and use our services. Paying members will get our newsletter, The Reactor, when it comes back into production. To join, please use this link: http://ehnca.org/membership-donations/
Q: When are your meetings?
A: Most of the year, we meet the first Saturday of the month at 4pm (some exceptions). The best way to find out about upcoming meetings is to join the EHN-Announce mailing list, since we do sometimes change meeting days, times, and locations. There is a speaker, a support group where everyone gets the chance to talk, and then a potluck. Meetings are held in Ecology House’s Community Room. 375 Catalina Blvd, San Rafael, CA 94901. People must come scent-free. Contact us if you have any questions.
Q: When are your picnics?
A: During the summer, we have picnics instead of regular meetings. Although we aim for the first Saturday of the month, often the dates aren’t quite the same. We vary the locations and usually meet in San Rafael, Berkeley, and Santa Rosa, but we’re open to other locations around the Bay Area. All of our events are scent-free and held in areas free of pesticides, air freshener, cigarette and bbq smoke, and other avoidable toxins.

Q: What do you have for people with limited or no computer access?
A: In addition to our in-person meetings (and The Reactor when we are back in production), we are planning to add phone conferencing.
Q: How can I volunteer?
A: We have volunteer opportunities for both members of our community and for scent-free supporters. Let us know if you’re local or not and what you have in mind.

A: Donations are welcome. Please use the contacts below (online donations by credit card coming soon!). You can also take used goods to Community Thrift in San Francisco.
