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.

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.

Women's History Month Highlight: State...

This month we are celebrating Women’s History Month, including International Women's Day on March 8th! In honor of this month, we are proud to highlight one of California’s most amazing women, State Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry of the Fourth District.

From the beginning of her term in 2017, Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry has been huge supporter of NEWS and the work that we do throughout the County. During her time in the Assembly, she has worked on a broad range of legislation. We are so appreciative of the focus Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry has placed on issues revolving around women, children, health care, and internet connectivity.

To illustrate, this year she is working on AB 1264. This bill establishes Project ECHO, a Children’s Mental Health Grant Program which connects primary care clinicians and school-based professionals with youth mental health specialists. The goal of this program is to bring a higher level of awareness and resources to address the mental health needs of our youth, especially given the effects triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry is also hard at work on AB 791. The purpose of this bill is to expand access to trauma-informed childcare trainings by creating the Trauma-Informed Childcare Training Grants Program. The goal of this program is to offer it as a part of a block grant to support early learning and care programs.

Navigating through the maze of state government agencies can be a daunting task. Residents can become easily and understandably frustrated. We are incredibly grateful that Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry and her team are consistently available to assist constituents, while working toward solutions to a wide variety of issues and topics that affect us all.

This last year has been exceptionally challenging due to the large and rapid increase of unemployment due to Covid19. Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry and her team is working nonstop to help constituents with their unemployment claims. Their assistance has ensured that individuals and families received the benefits they needed and deserved.

“From legislation addressed by Capitol staff to constituent services provided by my District staff, our work is truly a team effort,” Aguiar-Curry shared, “and NEWS is an integral partner and a valued team member.”

If you have any questions about legislation or are in need of assistance, call Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry Napa District Office at (707) 224-0440.
