Contagious Joy

The last few weeks have been full of joy, from our youth program float in the Calistoga Tractor Parade to gingerbread house decorating parties at Calistoga Elementary School and the St. Helena Fire Department, Wonka movie showing at Cameo Cinema, parent-student community art nights with Nimbus, and holiday assistance gift distributions. The warmth and light these events have brought to the community would not have been possible without the support of our incredible staff, amazing community partner organizations, wonderful volunteers, and generous donors! We are thankful for everyone who played a role in making this holiday season a little brighter for our upvalley community!


Leticia's Story

Leticia and her spouse have struggled financially for years to provide for their family. When the community shut down during the pandemic, they fell behind on their rent and were not eligible for government assistance. When the eviction moratorium ended, they received a 30-day notice and became homeless with their three children. They knew they could come to the Family Centers for help and through the various efforts of our case managers and countywide partners, we found the family a new place to live and covered the cost of their deposit.

It’s stories like Leticia’s that underscore why our work matters. Stability and growth are not possible without first addressing basic human needs - together we make that possible.

Thank you for your support in ensuring that we can continue helping families and individuals to access resources for stability and growth over the long term.
