Fight Poverty

We believe that our Valley is only as strong as its most vulnerable residents. Unfortunately, significant barriers – like the high cost of housing – stand in the way of local families’ ability to thrive. 

Our impact

For the last 14 years, we’ve been making investments that help our most vulnerable Valley neighbors get their basic needs metfrom feeding programs to the development of below-market rate apartments. In 2020, we also launched a new initiative, the Napa Sonoma ADU Center, to help create affordable rental units for the Valley’s workforce in the form of Accessory Dwelling Units.
