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.

Mission

Yolo County Children's Alliance helps families, particularly non-English speaking families, access services, learn valuable parenting skills, and find support. We do this through family strengthening programs which focus on the following areas: family support, education, and community collaboration and advocacy. Our mission is to assess, coordinate, and act to strengthen and support the continuum of prevention and intervention services and resources for children, youth, and their families.

Needs

In 2021, YCCA served more than 15,000 individuals and children across our programs, weekly food distributions, and community-wide events. We support families through our programs, but also make a concerted effort with our partners to ensure our families always have access to basic needs when they come to us for help.

Unrestricted funding allows us to fill gaps in program needs and offer additional support to families like bus passes, diapers, coats, shoes, translation services, staff development, and more. Unrestricted funding is vital to being able to offer consistent and responsive support amidst the ebb and flow of program specific funding which is inconsistent and can be restrictive in terms of what it's spent on.

Our agency needs include both monetary and in-kind donations. Monetary donations are used towards purchasing food, formula, printed parent packets, and other program supply purchases. Additionally, the funds received from BDOG help us purchase hundreds of backpacks and school supplies for our annual Backpack Giveaway; thousands of coats for children for the winter at our Community Giveaway Day; and thousands of toys for children during our Holiday Toy Distribution event.

In addition, we are always in need of the following in-kind donations: new diaper packs, non-perishable food (granola bars, quick meals, soups, baby formula), books for children, NEW shoes and clothing for children, NEW backpacks and school supplies for our Backpack Giveaway, NEW coats and winter supplies for our Community Giveaway Day, and NEW toys for our toy distribution.
