Community Collaboration & Advocacy
YCCA also convenes community partners and fosters connections among organizations in order to increase countywide collaboration. These efforts are aimed at empowering Yolo County families to be healthy and strong and offering children the best chance of thriving and growing.
Working together to make a difference in Yolo County! The Yolo Family Strengthening Network/Child Abuse Prevention (YFSN/CAP) Committee integrates family strengthening and child abuse prevention efforts. The committee of over 20 Yolo County agencies and organizations focuses on making Yolo County families stronger by engaging family-serving organizations in using evidence-based and evidence-informed practices, thereby improving outcomes for children and parents and reducing child abuse and neglect.
The goal of the Yolo County Community Health Initiative (YCHI) is to provide access for Yolo County residents to health insurance and quality, affordable health care services, including mental health services, dental health services, vision services and prescription services. Since 2005, YCCA has accepted primary responsibility for securing funding, staff resources, and political/community support for the YCHI. This initiative is a county-wide, inter-agency partnership aimed at reducing the number of uninsured individuals living in Yolo County.
