We are proud to be working closely with many wonderful programs in Yolo County. Below is some information and links to a couple of these agencies:
Founded in 1993, The Northern California Children’s Therapy Center (CTC) is a nonprofit organization committed to a mission that no child should go through life with a disability that could be aided or prevented through early intervention. CTC provides multidisciplinary developmental services to all children birth through 21 years, regardless of ability to pay.
First 5 Yolo was formed as the Yolo County Children and Families Commission (YCCFC) following the passage of Proposition 10 in 1999. The Prop 10 initiative added a 50-cent-per-pack tax on cigarette sales to fund programs promoting early childhood development for children ages 0-5 and their families. First 5 Yolo is dedicated to serving the needs of the county’s youngest residents through direct services and systems change efforts. To learn more about programs funded by First 5 Yolo, visit their website at: www.first5yolo.org
In November 2004, California voters passed Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). MHSA funding provides a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and services, and the necessary infrastructure, technology and training elements to effectively support the local mental health services system throughout California. In 2018 a portion of the MHSA funding was applied to funding the Help Me Grow Yolo County Program
YCCA offers developmental screenings to all parents and children ages 0-5 in order to identify early signs of developmental and behavioral issues. If needed, YCCA helps children and parents get connected to community-based developmental and behavioral services and support in their community. We welcome referrals from organizations that serve families.
