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.
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.
