Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Aldea's mission is to improve lives and create bright futures for people we serve by providing professional mental health, child welfare and support services in a manner that respects the dignity and individuality of each person. Aldea also aims to increase mental health literacy in our community and develop a dialogue around suicide prevention and mental health issues to reduce the stigma associated with asking for help.

Aldea offers a wide range of therapeutic and support services that equip people with the tools needed to improve their health and relationships. Through critical mental health, treatment foster care and adoption, and support services, Aldea helps more than 3,900 people annually in Napa and Solano counties who face obstacles to accessing and receiving effective treatment.

In spring of 2016, Aldea launched Courage Village, a suicide prevention and community engagement project, in partnership with Village Napa. We will continue to reach the community through speaker series, presentations, marketing campaigns, and partnerships with other key organizations to open the dialogue around suicide and mental health. Through this project we are making our "village of supporters visible to those who are in most need in our community and creating a space for open discussion and embracing the mental health needs of all our residents.

Our goal from day one has been to offer the highest quality services and programs to the most vulnerable in our communities. Through community partnerships, generous supporters, and a staff of more than 130 professionals, are able to help children transition to safe home, families strengthen their relationships, and adults with developmental disabilities maintain their independence.

Aldea has partnered with Ole Health, NEWS, COPE Family Center, Up Valley Family Center, NVUSD, NCOE and Napa Valley College, strengthening the impact of Courage Village and increasing the continuity of information into the community and the awareness of the mental health needs of our most vulnerable.

Aldea provided more than 3,900 people in Napa and Solano counties with critical mental health, child welfare, and support services during our 2015-16 fiscal year.

• provided 1,840 Napa County youth with tools to prevent substance use
• ensured 676 more community members can recognize and respond to signs of mental illness
• enabled 44 adults with developmental disabilities to learn life skills to remain independent
• empowered over 200 vulnerable youth to begin to heal in Aldea foster homes
• connected 4 kids in foster care with their forever families through adoption

Our greatest recent successes revolve around the agency's responsiveness to community needs. There has been successful integration of therapy services with the new wellness centers in local schools, and expansion of our Supportive Outreach & Access to Resources (SOAR) program—the only program in Napa County specifically designed for the early detection and treatment of psychotic illness. Aldea responded to the mental health needs of the community by providing emergency crisis counseling for community members following the spring suicides of local teens and successfully launching a suicide prevention and awareness campaign that is Courage Village. In addition, due to the growing need for affordable housing options for youth transitioning out of foster care, Aldea expanded our Transitional Housing Placement + Foster Care (THP+FC) program by offering housing assistance and support services for youth transitioning out of foster care by purchasing a triplex. Between the duplex and triplex, Aldea can provide housing assistance and support for up to 14 youth at a time.
