COVID-19 Information and Resources

The UpValley Family Centers is committed to serving our community both in times of opportunity and in times of need. The coronavirus has brought daily life to a standstill, and much is uncertain – but we are here to provide information, support, and resources to anyone who is impacted by this new crisis.

The UpValley Family Centers continues to work actively with the Napa Valley COAD and the County of Napa to monitor the situation, to provide accurate and up-to-date information to the public, and to make sure that the needs of our community are heard and addressed.

Our phone lines are open and our staff are available during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 8.30 am to noon and 12.30 to 5 PM.

In order to help ensure a safe and healthy environment for all staff and clients at the UpValley Family Centers, our offices will see clients in person by appointment only. If you would like to schedule an appointment with a staff member, please call us at (707) 965-5010 and we will be happy to assist you.

In order to maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet inside our offices, we ask that all clients come to their appointment alone, except in those cases when a spouse must be present. If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, please call us to postpone your appointment.

When you arrive for your appointment, please wait outside, and our staff will come to greet you. You will be asked to put on a face covering and sanitize your hands. You will also be asked to respond to a check of COVID-19 symptoms, to sign a release of liability, and to have your temperature taken. We are grateful for your cooperation in our effort to maintain the health of our community.
