Napa County offers a variety of services for people who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. Services are coordinated by The Mayors’ Housing and Homeless Services Policy Council and the Napa Continuum of Care.
There are several shelters operating within Napa County, including two year-round homeless shelters, the Samaritan Family Shelter and the South Napa Shelter. There is also an Emergency Shelter and a homeless resource center in Napa called The Hope Center. All three shelters and the Hope Center are operated, under contract with the County of Napa, by Community Action Napa Valley. Funding for the shelters and the resource center is supplied in large part by area cities and the County of Napa.
