NEWS is here to help!

NEWS is committed to supporting victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse, especially during this time of unprecedented transitions and health concerns. Out of deep respect for our employees and their families, for the time being, we will be pausing the ability to take walk-ins at our administrative office, and will be serving clients by appointment only. In no way will our commitment to providing safety, hope, healing and empowerment for survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse be minimized.

The NEWS Emergency Shelter programs remain operational 24-hours a day, and we continue to provide safe housing, emergency counseling, and emergency needs to victims escaping violence.

If you, or anyone you know, needs to access NEWS services at any time, please have them call our 24-hour help line (707) 255-6397 for immediate assistance. Also, you may continue on to our website or email us.

Thank you for your understanding and consideration,

Tracy Lamb
Executive Director

¡NEWS está aquí para ayudar!

NEWS se compromete a apoyar a las víctimas de violencia doméstica y abuso sexual, especialmente durante este tiempo de transiciones sin precedentes y preocupaciones de salud. Por un profundo respeto por nuestros empleados y sus familias, por el momento, suspenderemos la capacidad de recibir visitas sin cita previa en nuestra oficina administrativa y atenderemos a los clientes solo con cita previa. De ninguna manera se minimizará nuestro compromiso de brindar seguridad, esperanza, sanación y empoderamiento a las sobrevivientes de violencia doméstica y abuso sexual.

Los programas de Refugio de Emergencia de NEWS permanecen operativos las 24 horas del día, y continuamos brindando vivienda segura, consejería de emergencia y necesidades de emergencia a las víctimas que escapan de la violencia.

Si usted, o alguien que conoce, necesita acceder a los servicios de NEWS en cualquier momento, pídales que llamen a nuestra línea de ayuda las 24 horas (707) 255-6397 para obtener asistencia inmediata. Además, puede continuar en nuestro sitio web o enviarnos un correo electrónico.

Gracias por su comprensión y consideración.

We Need Your Support!

A gift to NEWS is a significant way to help provide safety to adults and children in our community who are escaping domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Your tax deductible donation goes to support services such as emergency shelter, support groups for women and children, court advocacy, and transitional housing. Please join with us to support these life-saving programs.


Do you wonder how your donation dollars help NEWS clients? Click HERE to find out.

Ways to Donate

Donate Online – It's easy and you can make a one-time payment or sign up to make sustaining monthly contributions. Click here!

Donate by Mail – Send a check in the mail to: 1141 Pear Tree Lane, Suite 220, Napa, CA 94558

Organize a Workplace Giving Program – Many employers have giving programs which allow you to select the charity of your choice and donations are made through automatic payroll deductions.

Planned Giving – Planned gifts ensure that our agency will be around for years to come to address the unique needs of our clients. Consider making a bequest to NEWS in your will or living trust. Bequests can be made in cash, securities, real property or personal property. You can also contribute a percentage of your estate. Your estate will receive a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the donation, so your estate will not pay estate tax on these assets. For more information we recommend you consult an estate planning counsel.

Become a NEWS Community Champion – NEWS seeks local businesses to make an annual investment and become NEWS Community Champions. Annual donors make a statement and take a stand to support domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors in the Napa community. If your company is interested becoming a NEWS Community Champion, learn more on our Sponsorship page and get in touch with the NEWS Development Director, Andi Grote, at

Non-Cash (In-Kind) Donations – NEWS is appreciative of every generous individual and/or organization that inquires about donating to our clients. While we understand the power of utilizing every available resource and we care deeply about making sure those resources end up in the hands of our clients, we also must balance the capacity of our staff and infrastructure to manage, store, and distribute those items as well as current health/safety concerns. As such, NEWS has implemented a policy and these guidelines concerning non-cash donations.


NEWS has a trusted track record for responsible use of funds: 85% of the funds NEWS receives go directly to services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Although, we think that without a safe building for victims to come to, and people who work at overseeing the best use of funds, we wouldn't be able to help like we do... so we believe that 100% of funds are used to help victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse!


Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds occupied by the needs of others. -- Barbara Bush
