Since 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Applicants (DACA), known as the DREAMers law, has allowed certain young immigrants here in the United States without documents to qualify for temporary legal status and work permission. In the intervening two years, over 750,000 young people have obtained this form of legal status through the DACA law including thousands from the counties of Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino and Marin. The goal of My American DREAMs is to celebrate the young immigrant DREAMers through a multimedia project. Visit their YouTube channel and read and share our multi-media project.

League of Women Voters
America’s nonpartisan voter information resource since 1920, the League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Provides bi-lingual free and low-cost counseling to referrals from agencies throughout the County, including: Ole Health, Cope Family Center, Up Valley Family Resource Center, Puertas Abiertas, Napa Emergency Women’s Services, Collabria Care, Queen of the Valley Medical Center, and Napa County Health and Human Services.
Puertas Abiertas was formed in 2004 by St. John the Baptist Catholic Church as Spirit of Unity in Napa with the goal to bridge the gap between service providers and the Latino community by bringing together resources and by providing culturally sensitive intake and guided referrals. In 2005, Puertas Abiertas became an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and in 2007 the Community Resource Center opened its doors on Napa Street. On average, over 600 families are served by Puertas Abiertas every year.
