Lyon Ranch is a nonprofit organization that connects animals with nursing homes, hospitals, retirement communities, senior citizen centers and various events throughout the Bay area. Many of the animals have been rescued from neglect, abuse, or euthanasia, and now serve to benefit the emotional and physical health of the many at no charge.

The Pathway Home is a men’s residential recovery program, assisting veterans of any age and any branch of service who have returned from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), and other GWOT theaters with their post deployment transitions in a safe, respectful, caring, challenging and supportive environment.

Yountville Arts was formed in 2009 to provide vision, leadership, inspiration and support to artists and their art in Yountville.
