NEWS – IN SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY IN TIMES...

Earthquakes, fires, and floods have more in common with domestic violence and sexual abuse than you might think. There is fear, loss, uncertainty, and ongoing feelings of trauma related to something that happened to you that was not in your control. NEWS has a highly trained, caring, staff ready to be there with people who have these types of experiences.


NEWS staff was there at the Local Assistance Center on the morning it opened after the wildfire, providing direct assistance to fire victims, coordinating staffing, “directing traffic”, setting up laptops and collecting data, and just being a calm place to land for a community dealing with overwhelming physical and emotional loss. It was our honor to assist hundreds of fire survivors every day over the two and a half weeks after the disaster. We thank our partners at Napa County Health and Human Services, other nonprofit organizations who participated in the Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) team, and the Napa Valley Community Foundation and everyone who donated to them, for being there and being ready right from the beginning. We know there are many families who have a long road ahead, and like survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse, we believe there will be a strong and caring community here to support them for as long as it takes.
