The City directs its efforts at providing resources to those who are willing to accept help, partnering with regional organizations to address the causes of homelessness and deter unwanted behaviors. We collaborate with partner organizations to provide services and a path to self-sufficiency to those who are currently in need. We start with outreach: face-to-face dialogue to ascertain if an individual is from Napa and might have family nearby. We gather information to determine what services an individual might need and then take the appropriate steps, whether it’s a referral to Abode, a bus ticket to reconnect with family, or something else. We also provide a continual, visible, and physical presence to deter illegal activity.
