Aldea's Courage to Change a Life Award is given to an individual or family that has created a brighter future for themselves and their community through participating in our services.
Our 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. Founded in 1972 in Napa, Aldea began as a group home for adolescent girls and has grown to serve children and families in Napa, Solano and Sonoma Counties.
