October 13th, 2017

The family resource center will be open during regular hours for the remainder of the week. We are working with our partners to get more information about available resources and will have more information to come. Power and internet access is available at the center for those in need. 

As a key member of the community's disaster response team, Cope Family Center has an important role in the fire relief and recovery efforts including the disbursement of financial assistance to those impacted by the fire. Information about disaster assistance can be found on this page or by calling 707.252.1123.


In addition to our community disaster relief efforts, many of our regular programs and services remain available for families regardless of disaster-related needs. Our Family Resource center is open with reduced hours, Monday - Friday 10:00am-5:00pm. 

Services include: 

- Crisis intervention for support with family emergencies

- Emergency aid such as diapers, wipes and formula

- Use of our play room and family quiet room to use with your child or children

- Internet, phone and computer use to search for housing or employment

- Information and referrals to community organizations and government agencies for further assistance

**Please note that all Cope classes have been postponed until further notice. Please contact us at 707.252.1123 for status of our peer support groups or with questions.** 

 


 As our community transitions from emergency response to recovery and relief, your support is needed now more than ever. Here are some ways you can help: 

Monetary donations can be made directly to Cope at www.copefamilycenter.org/donate or to the Napa Valley Community Foundation Fire Relief Fund at www.napavalleycf.org/fire-donation-page.

Gift cards in denominations of $20-$25 can be dropped off at Cope Family Center or the Napa Valley Community Foundation to directly help those affected by the fires. Visa, MasterCard, or Amex gift cards cards, as well as cards for the large department stores like Target, Walmart and grocery stores are what is needed.

No item donations are being accepted at this time. Due to the generosity of our community we are at storage capacity.

Due to the overwhelming response of our community all of our volunteer needs have been met. As we transition from emergency response to recovery mode more volunteer opportunities may arise.

Follow us on facebook or check this page frequently to receive updates as they become available.
