NEWS Domestic Violence Housing First Model Receives National Attention

While NEWS has been over here, piecing together funding, and working with landlords, to find safe and affordable housing for its survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse, people were taking notice. In the past year and a half, the NEWS Self-Sufficiency & Housing team has helped over 150 families in Napa County. NEWS received grant funding to provide housing services to survivors of domestic violence in October of 2017 from the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) when they funded 33 non-profit agencies to implement the Domestic Violence Housing First (DVHF) model. Since NEWS received the grant, 42 families who were rendered homeless, as a direct result of domestic violence, are living in apartments of their own thanks to subsidies and services provided by NEWS. An additional 54 were able to go from the homes they were no longer able to afford to new apartments, and 58 receive bridge funds to help them remain safely in their homes. Read More »

NEWS Peace Awards

NEWS is pleased to announce that the NEWS Peace Awards event (Formerly Men Making NEWS) will be held on October 24, 2019.  To acknowledge the strength and worth of exceptional men guiding our community in Napa County who change the lives of families and youth for the better, NEWS started holding the event, Men Making NEWS, 13 years ago. In 2017 the category of Peace Officer of the Year was added, and Coach of the Year was added in 2018, to go along with our established awards of Young Man of the Year and Male Role Model of the Year. With these additional  non-gender awards, it was time to change the name of our event to emphasize non-violence. Two additional awards are given by the NEWS staff for NEWS Champion of the Year, and the NEWS Hope Award for a local business.  Awards CeremonyThe awards will be presented during a recognition reception to be held at Embassy Suites on Thursday, October 24th, 5:30-7:30pm.
