Mission Statement

Mission: To provide opportunities through employment, education, creative expression and community involvement for individuals with disabilities.

Vision: To live in a society where individuals with disabilities are contributing members of their communities and are supported by caring and professional quality staff working together.

Description

Everyone needs to be valued. But for people with disabilities, this doesn’t just happen. Napa Valley Support Services (NVSS) is a 501(c)3 agency that has been in operation since the late 1950’s providing services to adults with developmental disabilities. Our Imperial Way program supports each of over 100 individuals to maximize his or her personal and vocational potential. More than 70% of participants in the Imperial Way Program work in the community. In addition to employment, we provide education both onsite, and in the community; living skills including self-care and self-advocacy; recreation and leisure skills to access and enjoy community resources; and behavior and social skills to build confidence and assertiveness in speaking up for oneself. At our Brown Street Gallery individuals have the ability to earn money through the sale of their creative expressions. Our third program, Napa Personnel Systems (NPS) helps individuals with disabilities find, learn and maintain jobs. Since everyone is different, we do this one person at a time. Napa Valley Support Services is dedicated to ensuring people with disabilities can experience being valued in the community, via a partnership of professional staff, families, and caregivers. Together, we are building a society where all people with disabilities can contribute to-and be valued by-their communities.
