Foster Kinship Care Education

Overview

Foster Care Kinship Education

Foster Parent Recruitment, Education and Retention

Yolo County Children’s Alliance administers a collaborative program to recruit, retain, and support foster families within Yolo County. Yolo County has one of the most robust and well regarded foster family education and support programs within the State. This is a result of the partnership between Yolo County Child Welfare Services and its partners, and because of the support and education that is provided through Woodland Community College’s Foster Kinship Care Education program and the Yolo Crisis Nursery.

If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please call the Foster Kinship Care Education program at (530) 574-1964.

If you know a family experiencing a crisis or needing a safe, temporary place for their children (up to 5 years old), please call the Yolo Crisis Nursery at (530) 758-6680. Services are voluntary and free.
