$67,800 raised from 153 donations


How We Impact the Community

We provide hope and healing to victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Last year, 1,800 of our Napa County community members sought help from NEWS. Our services include an emergency shelter home, 24-hour helpline, court advocacy, support groups, transitional housing, community education, programs for children exposed to domestic violence, and support to youth experiencing intimate partner violence.

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

Our goal is to encourage and empower our clients to lift themselves and their children into a healing and safe environment. We bring respect, understanding, and resources to survivors. We foster kindness and support from the community to help create peaceful homes and healthy neighborhoods.


There was a time not so long ago when I didn’t know if my children and I would see tomorrow, and to look back at that now, if feels like a completely different life.
