Residential or Day Program?

The residential program is open 365 days per year, around the clock. That's because it's HOME for our residents.

The Day program is for people who live in the surrounding community (mainly Napa, but the program is open to anyone who can attend regularly). Some Vine Village residents also attend the day program, but many prefer going out during the day to jobs, other day programs, or classes. The Day program operates Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, except for holidays and other scheduled down times.


Admission Criteria

 Vine Village, Inc. serves individuals who, to the best of their ability, understand and agree to work with us in meeting their training and community integration needs. This service provision is based on a consumer's willingness to: accept the organization's assistance, follow-through with agreements and maintain a schedule that allows the organization to help one meet important service needs.  These procedures explain consumer eligibility, referral information, requirements, expectations, and exit criteria. The Administrator is responsible for organizing, developing, implementing, and revising these procedures. The management team makes the final.
