How We Impact the Community

Youth emancipating from the foster care system are among the most vulnerable young people in our communities, often facing grim prospects in early adulthood.

VOICES Napa provides youth with family-like support, acceptance, and accountability as they transition out of ‘the system’. We help them set and pursue their goals. Our youth-led core programs focus on their mental and physical health/wellness, education, career, and independent living. Nearly one thousand Napa County youth went through our programs in 2022.

Many of these young people have suffered child abuse, neglect, homelessness, and incarceration; some continue to experience trauma. VOICES works with them on goal setting/planning and supports them as they learn to eliminate unproductive behaviors triggered by past traumas, so their goals aren’t derailed.

VOICES’ one-of-a-kind Youth Engagement Model has proven that empowering youth to design and lead programs intended to meet their specific needs results in much better outcomes. This peer-to-peer, foster youth to foster youth, model has created incredible opportunities for success with young people.


I found VOICES at a time when I needed to learn how to emotionally heal. VOICES not only helped me grow but inspired me to pay it forward and help other youth in my community.
