What We Do:

Encourage and empower victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse; give them the strength and hope to lift themselves and their children into a healing and safe environment. Bring respect, understanding, and resources to survivors. Foster kindness and support from the community to help create peaceful homes and healthy neighborhoods.

Services include an emergency shelter home, 24-hour helpline, court advocacy, support groups, transitional housing, community education, and programs for children exposed to domestic violence.

All services are free, bilingual, confidential, and open to everyone:  men, women, children, and LGBTQ, regardless of immigration status.

Other Ways to Help:

NEWS seeks qualified volunteers to provide pro bono legal assistance to help counsel our clients.

Donations needed for clients who are moving into their own homes and starting over:

  • Kitchen:  flatware, plates, pots, pans, dish towels, plastic containers, mixing bowls, paper products, measuring cups/spoons, cooking tools
  • Small appliances:  coffee pots, toasters, blenders, microwaves, etc.
  • Bed/bath:  beds, sheets, pillows, blankets, dressers, nightstands, rugs, lamps, towels, toiletries, shower curtains
  • Gift cards:  Safeway, Walmart, Target, and Amazon


NEWS advocates are my guardian angels. I never realized people like them existed.

~ Rose, domestic violence survivor
