Yolo County Children's Alliance (YCCA) has a proven track record of helping families to access community resources and build meaningful ties to their community and to each other. We manage successful programs that support families by building trust with the communities and families that we serve, and amongst our peers.

We actively seek out opportunities to build connections among community partners in ways that benefit families and the community at large. By taking into account each family's medical, nutritional, emotional, and environmental needs, connecting them to resources, and engaging them in giving back we are able to support growing numbers of community members in making lasting change.

Giving Activity

Mission

Yolo County Children's Alliance believes in ensuring everyone in Yolo County has access to the resources they need to build meaningful ties to their communities and each other.

We believe better futures for our children start by building thriving environments to live, learn, and grow. Everything we do is about ensuring everyone in Yolo County has access to the resources they need to build meaningful ties to their communities and each other.

Needs

In 2022, Yolo County Children's Alliance family support services were accessed more than 75,000 times! Of those services, 5,600 families were a part of our community resource event services, including our Backpack Giveaway Day, Community Giveaway Day, and Toy Distribution.

Donations from campaigns like Big Day of Giving bridge the gap in program supports and offer an opportunity to bring concrete resources to everyone in our communities. Big Day of Giving funds are turned into those concrete resources, and directly help those families who need it most.

For the 2023 Big Day of Giving, YCCA is looking to our community to help us raise $20,000 for our annual Backpack Giveaway Day. Last year, we supplied more than 1,600 students with backpacks, supplies, and health resources throughout Yolo County. The need is rapidly rising as inflation disproportionately effects the families who are most in need of extra support.

To break it down, $25 provides one student with EVERYTHING they need to start the school year off strong. YCCA is able to leverage in-kind donations, partner and business support, and your donations to ensure each child receives unique and complete support to be the best student they can be! With basic needs met, families and students are able to focus on strengthening their ties to each other, their communities, and their schools.
