Healthy Families Yolo County
Step by Step

Step by Step is a home visitation program that uses the Healthy Families America model. Serving primary caregivers of children from conception to age 3, the program aims to improve the infant-parent relationship by enhancing skills, promoting healthy child development, and supporting bonding in a safe home environment. The program serves Yolo County’s most vulnerable mothers and provides practical support for accessing basic needs and community resources as well as activities to build parenting skills.

Overview

Health Insurance enrollment, retention, and navigation

YCCA wants to help everyone get access to health care. Through our Health Insurance Enrollment program, we help people get access to care, coverage, and other health-related resources. YCCA staff provide education about health insurance and health services options that are available to individuals, regardless of income. Community Resources Specialists will also personally walk a family through the process of applying or re-applying for health insurance and other available family support services, such as CalFresh or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Overview

Access to Food

YCCA is committed to helping people get access to healthy food. We do this through two programs: fresh produce distribution and CalFresh enrollment.

We distribute fresh produce each week at the West Sacramento Family Resource Center (FRC) twice a month at the Clarksburg FRC. This service is open to everyone in Yolo County, including families and seniors.

Overview

Developmental Screenings

Using the Help Me Grow 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.
