Information on the Napa Valley/Sonoma County Fires:

CVNL serves as an Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC), overseeing volunteers and donations for Napa and Marin Counties in the event of a disaster.  We have worked with amazing volunteers and partners over this past week to meet the needs of evacuees from the Napa and Sonoma wildfires. THANK YOU to all those who have served as volunteers, made donations, signed up, and jumped in to help. We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and we are inspired by your dedicated service to your neighbors and communities in this time of need.

We encourage all volunteers and people involved in the disaster response to take care of yourselves even as you are caring for others. Please click here for self-care resources for volunteers following a disaster.

As new opportunities to serve evacuees and support long-term recovery become available we will be notifying volunteers. There has been an outpouring of support and interest in volunteerism and we thank you so much for your willingness to serve. Please check back here for future updates along with our Facebook pageMarin County Government and Napa County Government.

Where passion meets professionalism.

We know that passion alone isn’t enough when it comes to creating strong nonprofits.

That’s why we work with aspiring and established leaders every day to help them build the skills and connections that can take their impact to the next level. With confident and prepared leaders, our nonprofits will be better equipped to create healthy, happy communities.
