Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Newton Mentoring Alliance is a program of The Newton Partnership (TNP), which consists of more than a dozen agencies working together to ensure that children of all ages are safe and healthy.
TNP rests on four core beliefs:
All children deserve to have healthy lives, mind and body, and to feel safe.
In order to achieve academically, children must feel supported, accepted, and safe.
The foundations for success are laid in early childhood and we are capable of nourishing lifelong success in preK-12 programs.
When families, schools, governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and communities work together to develop a circle of support, the chances for every child's success are enhanced in ways that far exceed the sum of the efforts of these groups working in isolation from each other.
The Newton Mentoring Alliance serves students in grades 6-12. We foster healthy social and emotional development of Newton youth by pairing students with a compassionate adult mentor. Through this program, we seek to:
Reduce engagement in high-risk behaviors such as substance abuse and aggressive/violent behavior.
Support students presenting social, emotional, behavioral and health-related issues.
Decrease the incidences of bullying and promote a culture of respect for self and others.
Teach youth to adopt patterns of behavior that support health and wellness.
Increase the community’s commitment to supporting youth.
