Ana Soto, NEWS Program Director, was awarded the Hilary Zunin CanDo Spirit Award, given to "a young leader in nonprofit". The award was presented at the Napa Valley CanDo's Give!Guide kick off party for 2023 on November 28th.
We recently assisted a male client, "John," who was experiencing emotional, physiological, and physical violence from his long-term partner. He had tried to get help in the past from friends and family, but had felt he was judged and that people had a bias towards him, not believing him or taking him seriously.
To start our journey into the next fiscal year, NEWS would like to take you along on the voyage of a NEWS client. This will give you an idea of what it is like to receive our services. As you can see, it isn’t just services. It is care, comfort, friendship, and strength. Our advocates are with a client every step of the way, letting the client lead, but offering support at every turn.
