Sometimes people need a hand to get back on their feet. Housing and Shelter Services provides a clean, safe place to stay, plus programs that re-build lives.

The Napa Valley Shelter Project operates the only emergency shelters for homeless men, women and children in Napa County. CANV's Housing and Shelter Services will utilize all available resources to stop homelessness in Napa County before it begins, and provide safe and humane temporary shelter to Napa County homeless individuals and families and coordinate resources to assist them in acquiring the skills and assets necessary to obtain and maintain permanent housing and self sufficiency.

Housing and Shelter Services

Getting Housed and Staying Housed

Homeless Prevention and Rental Assistance offer both long and short term assistance to help families and individuals avoid homelessness by maintaining the housing they currently have. Funds may be available for rental deposits, lapsed rent, utilities and shallow on-going rental subsidy. If authorized those payments are paid directly to the landlord or vendor. Call (707) 253-6148 for more information on Homeless Prevention and Rental Assistance.

Rapid Rehousing helps homeless households move into and maintain sustainable housing. Shallow rental subsidies may be available while intense case management helps to keep the households housed. Referrals for RRH come through our shelter case managers and other community partners.

Emergency Housing for Families with Minors

Samaritan Family Center - Located at 2521 Old Sonoma Road, SFC is an entry point to services for homeless families. Emergency shelter is offered along with coaching and case management to assist families in becoming financially self sufficient and sustainably housed. In addition, up to seven families may stay for one night only while other temporary shelter is arranged; call (707) 253-6145.

Emergency Housing for Adults (18+ yrs)

The HOPE Resource Center located at 1301 4th Street, is the entry point for all adult shelter services and provides showers, toilets, mail, phones, laundry, and other basic services for more than 85 homeless adults daily. A second tier of services, including medical care, job development, housing assistance, legal aid, mental health outreach, and any other services identified to assist this most-hard-to-reach population are also available and encouraged. Screening and referral for the South Napa Shelter is done at the HOPE Center. Vouchers for the Winter Shelter are distributed at this site. Phone (707) 259-8133 for more information.

The South Napa Shelter, a facility for clean and sober individuals 18 and older has two primary goals for its guests - increasing income and securing sustainable housing. We help them achieve those goals through weekly coaching/case management, requiring that they volunteer at the center and in the community, and providing the tools and encouragement to succeed. All guests are held accountable for their behavior at the center and in the community. All guests must be referred through the HOPE Center.

The Emergency Winter Shelter provides a safe, warm and dry place to sleep for Napa's most difficult to reach homeless population. There are few requirements for this shelter beyond basic civil behavior. Each year however, people move from the facility into other shelters and eventually sustainable housing. All guests must be referred through the HOPE Center.
