Our Promise

Our Promise to Our Donors

For more than four decades, we have provided compassionate care and support to those afflicted with a serious illness and their families—right here in Napa County.

While our name and colors may have changed over time, our commitment to the work has only grown and we now touch more lives than ever before.

With this growth has come the need for more funding so that we may continue the privilege of serving those with few financial means and those who desperately need services not covered by insurance.

Our solemn promise to you, our supporters who donate their time, goods, services, or money, is that your gifts will always be used here in our community to aid and support those who need us most. 

Our Foundation Board

All gifts made to our organization are overseen by our local Foundation Board ensuring that they are restricted to our program, just as our donors intended when they made their gift.


The Results Are In: The NOAA Report

NOAA paints a picture of a vibrant, caring community committed to a thriving age-friendly Napa County. The data in this report summarizes themes from 1530 survey responses, 21 Key Informant Interviews, and 76 focus group participants.

Used thoughtfully and creatively, this data will inspire an action plan that uproots inequities to promote healthy aging for everyone in Napa County.
