We are proud to be working closely with many wonderful programs in Yolo County. Below is information and links to a couple of these agencies:
Founded in 1993, the Northern California Children's Therapy Center (CTC) is a non-profit organization committed to a mission that no child should go through life with a disability that could be helped or prevented through early intervention. CTC provides multidisciplinary development services to all children born through 21 years, regardless of their ability to pay.
First 5 Yolo was formed as the Commission of Children and Families of Yolo County (YCCFC) after the passage of Proposition 10 in 1999. The Prop 10 initiative added a 50 cents per packet tax on cigarette sales to fund programs that promote early childhood development for children aged 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.
In November 2004, California voters approved Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). MHSA's funding provides a comprehensive continuum of prevention, early intervention and services, and the necessary elements of infrastructure, technology and training to effectively support the local system of mental health services throughout California . In 2018, a portion of the funding of the MHSA was applied to fund aid I grow Yolo County Program
YCCA offers development projections to all parents and children aged 0-5 to identify the first signs of developmental and behavioral problems. If necessary, YCCA helps children and parents connect with community development and behavioral services and support in their communities.
