COVID-19 UPDATE

NEWS is here to help!

NEWS is committed to supporting victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse, especially during this time of escalated stress and anxiety. Out of deep respect for the health of our employees and their families, our service deliveries have been altered slightly. In no way will our commitment to providing safety, hope, healing and empowerment for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse be minimized.

NEWS considers itself to be an “essential service” and we remain active and available to support those individuals and families suffering during this uncertain time.

On March 17th, NEWS staff started offering services remotely. NEWS program staff will do everything possible to provide compassionate trauma-informed care throughout this situation, with as little disruption as possible.

As of March 27th, NEWS is working to continue to maintain safe housing for our clients. We are experiencing a high volume of housing assistance requests. People requesting housing assistance may be asked to be put on a wait list to be contacted at a later date. We understand this is a very stressful time. We will contact those requesting services as quickly as possible. We ask that people requesting housing assistance have patience with us during this time as the NEWS Housing Program is doing its best to keep up with the needs of our community. 

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, visit us at www.napanews.org or email us at info@NapaNEWS.org.

Thank you for your understanding and consideration,


Tracy Lamb
Executive Director

A partir del 27 de marzo, NEWS estará trabajando para continuar manteniendo viviendas seguras para nuestros clientes. Estamos experimentando un gran volumen de solicitudes de asistencia de vivienda. A las personas que solicitan asistencia para la vivienda se les solicita que se incluyan en nuestra lista de espera para ser contactados más adelante.

Coach's Pledge

Coach's Pledge

Napa Valley coaches make a pledge. NEWS' SAVS program launched their annual campaign for April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), which invites local sports team coaches to sign a contract stating that they pledge to have ZERO tolerance for any form of sexual abuse and if any abuse is suspected, it will be immediately reported to the appropriate authorities. When a letter is signed, a certificate was sent to the coach along with a teal ribbon pin.

The pledge: I, [Coach], pledge to have a ZERO tolerance for any form of sexual abuse and if any abuse is suspected, it will be immediately reported to the appropriate authorities.
