How We Impact the Community

We serve and support foster, adoptive, and at-risk families in Napa County by providing essential resources; building community and offering connection so each child and family feels valued, loved, and supported by someone who understands the journey.

We strengthen and encourage long-term stability within families and work towards preventing a child from going into foster care. Monthly, we serve 55-60 children and families with clothing, shoes, personal care products, backpacks filled with comfort items, furniture, baby items, and gift cards. We also provide mentoring, respite, and family activities for licensed Resource Families. A Foster Kids Fund helps each child in care experience the special joys of childhood, helping to normalize their lives in an uncertain time. New this year is a post-adoption wraparound program that strives to stabilize families struggling with trauma behaviors and are at risk of an adoption disruption.


Expressions of Hope is invaluable. They helped set up our home to welcome our foster placements with care and respect, along with continued support for questions, and events that foster growth and positive relationships.
