Confidential Resources: On and Off Campus

On-Campus Confidential Resources*

Health Services – Our Health Services staff are available for all PUC students to address any of your physical needs. They can coordinate STI testing, transportation to Napa Queen of the Valley Hospital for a sexual assault exam, connect you to resources for safety planning, and more. Visit, email, or call 707-965-6339 (call 707-965-6789 for after-hour emergencies to reach the on-call nurse or therapist).

Chaplain & Pastors

The PUC Chaplain and Pastors are available to talk confidentially with any student or employee, no topics are off limits. To connect with any of PUC’s pastoral team see their emails below or call the Church office at 707-965-7297. One of the pastors is always on call and can be reached after hours by contacting Campus Security to connect you (707-965-6551). (Please note that Campus Security is not a confidential resource, but you can call them and asked to be connected to a pastor without giving additional detail.)

In order of appearance

* While these resources on campus are here to support you in the most confidential setting possible, there are a few areas of exemption in which they must legally make a report for the safety of the individual or the campus community. These exemptions include: 1) mention of immediate harm to self or others, 2) knowledge of likely re-occurring child, elder, or dependent abuse, including access to or possession of child pornography per California law, 3) knowledge of incapacitation or inability to care for self, and 4) if court ordered by a judge to release information.

Off-Campus Confidential Resources

NEWS – As Napa County’s only Domestic Violence & Sexual Abuse Services provider, NEWS provides numerous victim services options for all PUC students and employees. Their services include 24-hour crisis counseling, advocacy and support for reporting intimate partner violence or sexual assault, secure shelter locations for families fleeing abuse, support groups, children services, safety planning, and much more (staff are fluent in English and Spanish). Visit or call their 24-hour line 707-255-NEWS (6397).

While PUC works closely with NEWS to provide services for survivors, NEWS will never share information with PUC about any students or employees seeking services. NEWS staff are bound by stricter confidentiality requirements than PUC’s on-campus resources, and are only required to break confidentiality if the individual has shown that they are an immediate harm to themselves or others.
