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, we will be altering our services slightly. For the time being, we will be pausing the ability to take walk-ins at our administrative office, and will be seeing 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 profundo respeto por nuestros empleados y sus familias, modificaremos ligeramente nuestros servicios. Por el momento, estaremos pausando la posibilidad de realizar visitas sin cita previa en nuestra oficina administrativa y veremos 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.

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.
