Cash Assistance


CalWORKs is a public assistance program that provides temporary cash assistance for needy families with (or expecting) children. This program provides financial help for eligible needy families who have lost or had a reduction in their income.


The Welfare-to-Work (WTW) Program is the employment and training aspect of the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids Program (CalWORKs). WTW is designed to enable participants to achieve self sufficiency through employment.

General Assistance

The General Assistance (GA) program provides assistance for all eligible low-income residents of Napa County who are unemployed or unable to work. We provide short-term financial assistance, in the form of a loan for adults without children that will help an individual to either find employment or obtain support from another source.

Season of Sharing

Season of Sharing (SOS) is a private fund providing one-time crisis-based assistance for housing and critical family needs to Napa County residents. The program aims to help eligible households regain stability after experiencing an unforeseen emergency situation beyond their control.
